Happy Half

(Loving the half-wrapped make-up kit from Justice! Which was 40% off of 99 cents!!! Told you we don't do fancy gifts on half birthdays...)

Today Ellie is six and a half.
Instead of just reveling in the moment, she seemed perplexed as she asked,
"Why do we have to have a half birthday?"
I told her we didn't, we just thought it was fun to celebrate.  
To which she followed up with, 
"Well why did Jesus make half birthdays?"
Well Jesus didn't really.  It's just a passage of time. But how do you try to explain the existence of a date versus celebrating a date to a six and A HALF year old?
Happy Half Birthday Ellie.
Now just enjoy the rest of the day...
