Two cakes and a YouTube channel (birthday list update)

My daughter’s birthday is coming up, and her birthday list, similar to last year’s, is pretty great.

Aside from me being proud that art supplies and books are both on the list, I love that she is so specific about having a party with two cakes and getting a YouTube channel to post videos about drawing and Roblox. Oh, there is also the (surprise) friends birthday party that she suddenly wanted to arrange a week before her actual birthday.

She even insisted on making her own invites:

I don’t know what it is about them, but kids birthday lists inspire me to want to rethink my priorities and be a bit more bold with my own hopes and dreams.

Kids aim for the stars on their birthday; they’ll ask for anything! It’s a shame we feel like we need to be more sensible when we get older.

Why not keep asking (and hoping) for two cakes rather than one?

Comments welcome!
