Marisah’s eighth birthday was one of highs and lows.
The highs of course was that it was her birthday! She had five friends come over on the Saturday (her actual birthday) and they had a lot of fun playing outside as well as completing the treasure hunt I had arranged. During the hunt I noticed Marisah was a little slow and within an hour she had her head in a bowl vomiting and feeling very sorry for herself. We were all sorry for her as she was out for the count for the rest of the afternoon and evening.
We continued on though with a very sombre girl blowing out her birthday candles and watching a movie with her friends. Three friends stayed over for a sleep over and thankfully by the morning she was back to her normal self and enjoyed their company until they were picked up.
Later that evening over dinner Marisah enjoyed opening cards and gifts from her cousins while her sister and brother helped / played up.
Apart from the sickness it was a nice time with family and friends. With her 9th birthday only a few months away though I feel like time is spinning out of control.
Happy birthday Marisah, I still love you to the moon and back. xxx
