It was probably quite a shock for Poppy to have her sister born on the same day. No-one ever in a million years could have planned it that way or predicted it…these things just happen. But she actually has been fine about it. As she was at school all day we did Phoebe’s things in the day and made the evening just about Poppy – taking her to our favourite pizza restaurant.
She then had a stash of presents to open when we got home. We also celebrated her 11th birthday on the Sunday in a joint tea party.
It might have all felt weird but let’s face it there are only 365 days in a year so chances are quite a few of us have to share birthdays!
