    Birthday Girl





    Today is Maggie's birthday. She's 5. I can't believe that I have kept a human being alive for 5 years. Some things we love about Maggie are:

    She is always crafting. She loves to cut and paste, and color and draw, and sing and dance and dress up.

    She is very smart. She had an evaluation done for her speech class. She scored the highest possible points. She gets that from her mother. ;)

    She is very, um, shall we say, determined. She knows what she wants, and she will do whatever it takes to get it. She gets this from Sugar Daddy.

    She has a special affinity for Nunn Bee. Nunn Bee is my mom's mom, who died before Maggie was born. Yet somehow, Maggie knows all about her. Especially that Nunn Bee gave her all that hair she has. I love that they share old souls.

    She is very independent. She will climb on counters and chairs and stools if it warrants getting something she's after. This is a trait I love.


    So Maggie, I love you. You are very special. I know you chose to come to our family because you knew you'd be happy here. You have a very special spirit, and have a definite sense of right and wrong. Thank you for being so sweet and kind. You are a wonderful daughter!

    I swear I already left a comment. Maybe I was wishing someone else a happy birthday?

    Happy B-day Mags! She is the cutest. My fave things about her are her dress-ups, all things yellow, and her soft pants.
