Birthday boy.

I know it's your birthday today, but you gave me the greatest gift of all.

This morning after we ate B shaped pancakes but before you filmed a movie with your new remote controlled helicopter, we collected the eggs. Just you and me. We were pretty quiet, just going about our business of collecting and feeding.

And then you turned to me and told me you were happy. You were having the most wonderful birthday.

What more could I want? Your happiness is everything to me.

Happy birthday farmer Bren, I adore you. xx


ps. Thank you all for your lice stories and your other embarrassing moments. I love this community. I love that we are in this together. I love that you made me feel so much better about everything. xx
