Leila is so excited that it's my birthday. She has been baking a carrot cake for me, she came to have breakfast with me and looks at me with those eyes full of hope and excitement and she can't believe how lucky *she* is to be allowed to spend time with me on my birthday.
I'm not looking forward to the day where I search this blog for this entry when Leila still liked me and looked up to me like that! I hope that day never comes! 5 year old girls are such precious creatures.

Anyway so I came home today and there is the usual excitement and screaming that I am home. BTW, is there a more wonderful sound to come home to than the joyful screaming of kids? I can't imagine.
So Leila helps cooking in the kitchen as best as she can and when we sit outside to have dinner and cake, she says:

Leila:"I can't believe mom let me sit next to the birthday dad!"

Like it's such a privilege to sit next to me on my birthday and the most desirable thing ever. In contrast the boys could have cared less. The magical time with them has past (not that there aren't other great things the boys and I do now, it's just not celebrating birthdays with me anymore).

Also die Leila stellt mir immer dieselben Fragen. Sie ist eben eine Gewohnheitskreatur. Also habe ich angefangen die Antworten ein bischen zu veraendern.

Leila: "Papa, wie alt bist du?"
Ich: "29!"
Leila: "Papa, warum hast du Poren?"
ich: "Ich habe gar keine Poren. Ich habe winzig kleine Punkte die man kaum sehen kann."
Leila: "Papa, warum hast du eine grosse klobige Nase?"
ich: "Ich habe eine winzige, kleine, feine Nase!"

Leila: "Stop mit sagen not the truth. Sag einfach the truth. Ich willst dich liken just the way du bist."

Melissa:"How was school today?"
Leila:"Fine. ... except I had to sit there and listen to all their rules!"
