Alice made me this sweet card at school today, after spending the morning crying over one that wasn’t good enough. Also, I got a balloon.

Max made me two cards. And gave me an apple. He organized a birthday surprise for me this morning.

Sarah made me birthday brownies.

Not bad, birthday, not bad.

It’s the little things:

Like Max running past me down the hall, stopping, and then running back to give me a hug.

Or walking into Alice’s school to pick her up and hearing her laughing from the other room.
