Sally made the day fun and took me up on the offer to skip soccer practice so we could have family dinner. We included Charlotte- Clare's best friend - so it really felt like a special family outing. When we picked up Clare- Charlotte's Mom had homemade chocolate cookies as a treat for Clare. I love that Clare has a 2nd mom caring for her and letting her know how special she is.
It really was the best of both worlds tonight- having the whole family enjoying a Newark favorite and then time around our dining room table on Newark-Granville Road. I sat back and watched my first born beam with joy as she opened cards and gifts. She glowed in joy that elephants and thoughtful treats delivered! Thank you all for helping Clare feel the love we all hold for her.
