Sierra woke up at 8:00 knowing it was her birthday and sang herself the birthday song a few different times. I woke up at 7:00 from a telephone call after being up every hour of the night with Grant and tried to sound happy on the phone.
Sierra couldn't stop counting her presents on the table. After being told on the phone that Grant doesn't have the right insurance I got our hospital bill in the mail. I couldn't stop counting up the bill which was over four thousand dollars.
Sierra told me how she wanted her cake: chocolate with butterflies and flowers on it. I had trouble finding time to make and frost it when Grant was fussy all day.
Sierra got ready to open her presents and eat her cake. I got ready to clean up throw-up from Reanne who has been on the couch crying telling me how bad she feels. (Luckily she only missed the toilet once out of three times.)
Sierra had a wonderful, exciting, special day and was truly happy. Although my day was far from wonderful or exciting, I was glad to see Sierra's sweet smile and know that she had a good birthday.
