This morning Natalia surprised me by gladly putting on her down parka. She even declared, "Winter is the best time of year!" Why? Because she realized it's when her birthday is. Given her anger about the impending cold and snow, that sure puts a lot of pressure on her big day to live up to her expectations!
Ay yay ay... Perhaps I'll bake a "tropical cake" again... (This one was for her birthday last December).
