We recently had birthday season on Totem: all three of the children’s birthdays fall within a two-week span. It was been really fun to have lots of other kids boats around to share their special days.
Each child is granted provisional king/queen for a day status on their birthday . What will we eat? What will we do? It’s their call! All three have opted for games on the beach. This makes it seem an awful lot like every other day to us, but hey, it’s what they want.
We were on Tahuata for Mairen’s birthday, and spent the day playing in the surf. I think this pamplemousse from Mulan might actually have been one of her favorite presents…ask, and she’ll tell you: it was bigger than her head!
