So I made a nice (well, edible) dinner, set the table, and we all sat down together. I had been a little sentimental all day about the milestone of Little Bitty's first year home with us. I turned to Brother and explained the specialness of the day.
Mommy: Guess what? Today we have all been a family for exactly one year. It was January 9th last year when Daddy and I got home with Little Bitty from Guatemala and we began our life together as a family of four.
Brother: Oh... (pausing, looking somewhat thoughtful)...so, how many days does that make it until the new Backyardigans episode is on?
And so went our first annual Family Day. I hope they are all this special.
