Happy Birthday, Kate!

Today was Kate's birthday. It is eight years ago that she was born in an inflatable kiddie pool in her brother's room.

It is eight years ago that we tried every trick under the sun to finally get her out of my nice and cozy womb.

It is eight years ago that we were getting ready for a trip to the Netherlands to get green cards, we just needed this baby out first. She was supposed to be born on my birthday, but, like all my babies, was very tardy.

She is a very spunky 8yo, with a mouth that never stops talking.

She had a great day, including a candle saying 'Over the hill, too old to count' , which she chose because of 'This is funny! Just like the teletubbies, Over the hill and far away, Teletubbies come to play'. Who could disagree with a reasoning like that? ^^

Her biggest hit present was a Strawberry Shortcake Dance Revolution mat for the tv. Cees's reaction to it: 'This is disturbing...'
