Mica had her first birthday at her grandparents’ house, and it’s difficult to know who enjoyed this prospect more. Her grandma, with an unerring instinct for dealing with small children on a hot summer’s day, set out large tubs of water fills with all sorts of objects — hours of entertainment, for both Mica and the boys.



Then there were helium balloons to play with, and tasty food to eat, and of course lots of attention from the rest of the family, and the end result was a very happy and tired little girl at bedtime. Whether she had the least notion of it being her birthday is highly doubtful, but there’s no question in my mind that she knew herself loved.
