Happy Birthday Child!!

Today, she is eight.

It's hard to believe that tiny baby with the big cheeks, that opinionated toddler, that wild and energetic 4-year-old, became the beautiful person she is now. So creative, kind, smart, and FUNNY.

Did I tell you she's writing, directing, and starring in a series of plays with her friends at school? Title of the first one is FARTMAN IN THE WEIRD WORLD.


I love that  she loves to wear dresses and sparkly things (even though I didn't). I love that she LOVES to read. I love that she is stubborn and strong-willed enough to make it in the world. I love that she is way smarter than I am, but the teachers commented on how kind she is to others and how fun she makes the classroom. I love that she tries new things and likes adventure.

I love my baby who is so not a baby anymore--and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.

Happy Birthday, Child!

Awww. Happy Birthday (again) to Child! I can't believe she's eight, either.

I hope she had a wonderful birthday! Since we share Feb. 23, I will say I'm hoping for a good year for us both. Happy Birthday, Child!

They do grow up so fast, don't they?

Aw, what a lovely tribute to your little girl--she sounds fantastic.

Your happy blurt reminded me of when my kids were small, but it's just as amazing, fascinating and fun to see them become teenagers--and now my daughter is on the cusp of adulthood. Wow.
