Five. Claire has been anticipating her fifth birthday for quite some time now. In fact, she’s been counting down the days since Teddy had his birthday earlier this month. When people ask her how old she is she proudly tells them ” I am just five” as if she wants to relish being five for as long as possible. For her fifth birthday Claire requested “macaroni” pizza (pepperoni pizza) and chocolate cupcakes with pink icing. I was happy to oblige and excited to discover that chocolate cupcakes and strawberry butter cream icing make for a delicious dessert, one that I might have to repeat for my own upcoming birthday. And now for the interview:
