4th and 6th Birthday

Girls’ birthday. In one and half hour our guests will be here. And there are still sausages to be grilled, skewers and two salads to be made. Everything left for the last moment, again. I’m angry because he promised to do this and that but he’s been cleaning one bathroom for half an hour. And who will mop floors? And there’s still gazebo to be put together, though the weather has been spoiling us with beautiful sun so we could actually risk it. Shoot! In this sun you can see how badly my windows need to be cleaned. But there’s no time. There’s also no time to decorate walls with frames and prints of cutie marks that I even printed already because today is supposed to be filled with beloved ponies. Oh, and I still need to put some make- up on and straighten my hair.

But before I let anger and powerlessness seize me, I stop and remind myself my childhood birthday. I don’t know if the house was dirty or clean, if there were enough sweets and food, what my mom’s hair looked like, if everything worked out, if I was wearing my favorite dress or not. But I do remember people, common celebrating, birthday cakes and candles, smiles, games and some presents. Even of my 18th birthday I remember only presence of all important to me people, toasts, my happiness when nearly everyone gave me books for presents and my poems, printed and covered by Pati.

And what will my girls remember from today? Maybe shower of presents because our guests got totally carried away this year, maybe a cake made of our common ideas and cupcakes with ponies, maybe playing grandmother’s footsteps and Simon says, maybe how all girls kept sliding in play high heel slippers like drunk princesses. But they will definitely remember smiles, sun, colors, people and happiness, because we remember emotions most.

For Anabel the best present was spending a night at Lili’s . First night away from parents. And she didn’t even hug me goodbye, that’s how excited she was. And Rosie, disappointed that she had to stay with us, said she would dream of Anabel and slept hugging Pinkie Pie.

And I will remember most that sweet little “thank you, mummy, for my birthday”, which completely softened memories of nervous preparations and tiredness.

It was a beautiful day!

Urodziny dziewczynek. Za poltora godziny przyjezdzaja goscie. Trzeba jeszcze zgrillowac kielbaski, zrobic szaszlyki i dwie salatki. Znowu wszystko na ostatnia chwile. Mam nerwa bo On obiecal, ze zrobi to, to i to a tu pol godziny lazienke myje. I kto zmopuje podlogi? A jeszcze gazebo czeka na montaz chociaz pogoda nas dzis rozpieszcza pieknym sloncem i w sumie moznaby zaryzykowac. Kurcze, w tym sloncu widac jak bardzo moje okna domagaja sie mycia. Ale juz nie zdaze. Wiem juz , ze nie zdaze tez udekorowac scian ramkami i cutie markami, ktore juz nawet wydrukowalam bo dzisiejszy dzien jest caly wypelniony ukochanymi konikami pony. A i jakis makijaz wypadaloby nalozyc, wlosy wyprostowac.

Ale zanim nerw bezsilnosci na dobre mna zawladnie, zatrzymuje sie i przypominam sobie swoje urodziny z dziecinstwa. Nie wiem czy bylo brudno czy czysto, czy wystarczylo slodkosci, jak wygladaly wlosy mojej mamy, czy wszystko sie udalo, czy mialam na sobie ulubiona sukienke czy nie. Ale pamietam ludzi, wspolne celebracje, torty i swieczki, usmiechy, zabawy, co poniektore prezenty. Nawet z osiemnastki pamietam tylko obecnosc najblizszych mi wowczas osob, toasty, moje szczescie gdy niemal wszyscy podarowali mi ksiazki i moje wiersze wydrukowane i oprawione od Pati. 

A co moje dziewczynki zapamietaja z dzisiejszego dnia? Moze deszcz prezentow, bo w tym roku nasi goscie zupelnie dali sie poniesc, moze torta zlozonego ze wspolnych pomyslow i babeczki z konikami pony, moze zabawy w baba Jaga patrzy i Simon says, moze to jak wszystkie dziewczynki slizgaly sie i co rusz upadaly w zabawkowych pantofelkach na obcasie, niczym pijane ksiezniczki. Na pewno usmiechy, slonce, kolory, ludzi i radosc, bo to emocje zapamietujemy najtrwalej.

Dla Anabel najwiekszym prezentem bylo spedzenie nocy u Lili. Pierwsza noc poza domem bez rodzicow. Nawet mnie nie przytulila na odchodne taka byla podekscytowana. A Rosie, choc zawiedziona, ze musi zostac z nami, stwierdzila, ze bedzie snic o Anabel i zasnela przytulona do Pinkie Pie.

Ja zapamietam najbardziej to male slodkie “dziekuje za urodziny, mamus”, ktore rozmyly pamiec o nerwowych przygotowaniach i zmeczenie. 

To byl cudowny dzien!
