It’s hard to remember what life was like before Phoebe. She came into our world and filled it up. Larger than life! Fearless! Phoebe! I’ve often said that Bee doesn’t know she’s little, but the more I think on that, the more I believe it’s simply that she doesn’t feel small. She’s sure of herself. My mom says she’s an old soul.
I decided to start a new tradition with Phoebe: a birthday interview. Here’s the first one, on her third birthday.

She asked for “a Phoebe cake” for today. I’d already done bee cupcakes for her first birthday, but we revisited the theme.
She’s taking a dozen or so cupcakes to share with her dance class tonight.
The queen bee is ours.
