Sarah's Third Birthday
My niece Sarah had her third birthday today. She seemed to have a really good time, which was a bit of a surprise. My young nieces often hate the process of opening presents in front of a bunch of picture-taking adults, but Sarah was really excited about all her gifts. I guess she has taken to consumerism more quickly than her older sister.
I almost laughed when, at Toys'R'Us, the clerk asked whether I needed a gift receipt. "No, I'm buying a Care Bears jigsaw puzzle and a Playskool barbeque grill for myself" leapt to mind as a possible response, but I kept that thought to myself.
