Riley is a creative, artistic girl who is FUNNY. She is pretty sensative and quick to cry if she had disappointed anyone and she always aims to please. She has developed some attitude, not anything different than you would expect from a 7 year old though. We love love love our Riley!
Earlier this summer I came across a mermaid tail on line...it's a mono fin and a sequence filled tail you wear that covers the fin and goes to your belly. It is gorgeous and every little girls dream...they cost a pretty penny too. So josh and I talked to Riley about it and said we would buy it for her to have all summer BUT if we did she would need to pay is half ($50) and she wouldn't have a party for her bday in October, or treats for her class etc. He thought about it a few minutes and decided on the tail! So glad she did. She used it alll summer. Long story-geesh. Back to her birthday. She paid off her tail by her bday but like we discussed I didn't send treats to her class. She didn't whine. She got to pick what she wanted for dinner and Oma and Opa came over. I made brownies for dessert and they never baked for some reason. So we had left over ice cream and we FORGOT to sing happy birthday!!!!! Josh got her one gift and I got her a pack of new earrings. I feel like we jipped her. Josh made me feel bad for not sending anything to her class since she have us $50 of her own money toward the tail. So we decided to do a little slumber party with madylin, Morgan, Ava and anabelle! They had so much fun-we sang happy birthday and they stayed up giggling until midnight!!
So glad she has such great friends!
