Eight years ago, something special happened. My daughter was born. It’s a bit of a shock to think about it. I mean, EIGHT YEARS. How can time fly by so darn quickly? One moment, I’m cradling an infant and next I’ve got a girl who is at the right height to act as an armrest when I’m standing. Today is also the first day of third grade. Geez Louise! Wasn’t it just yesterday that I was arranging for preschool?
Despite my trepidation over the passage of time, I have to say, I’m super proud of this girl. She’s brilliant and intuitive. So filled with joy and kindness. I love how amazing she is. Tonight we’re heading to the state fair for some rides to celebrate. The birthday party won’t be for another week and a half, because she gets a joint one with her brother who wasn’t born until September.
So happy birthday to my little girl. May your days be as bright as mine are because of you!
What are you celebrating today?
