12:19 am

Dear Queen Bee:

I know you have heard of the moment I found out I was carrying your life in my body.

I know you have heard of the moments after your birth when you weren't breathing on your own, and we didn't hear you cry for 7-8 minutes.

I know you have heard of your first steps taken as you were watching Teletubbies.

I know you have heard how for quite some time, you referred to yourself only by your last name.

I know you have heard all about the first smiles, the first laughs, the first time you slept through the night, and the first tooth.

I know you have heard the stories of how you would love to get a bowl full of fresh snow, and sit on the kitchen floor with a big spoon and eat it.

I know you have heard us tell you countless times how much we love you.

But I don't think you have heard me tell you how much my life was changed at 12:19 in the morning on this date in 1998.

Happy Eighth Birthday, sweet, sweet child.

Happy Birthday, you big second grader! We are so proud of what you've done so far, and can't wait to see what you have yet to accomplish in life. You are a great big sister (most of the time!), and it's so nice when we catch you teaching your brother and sister things. And it's funny to see you mother them sometimes, too...
We love you very very very much! Enjoy your special day!!!
Love, Daddy

The Lovely She, that is me!

I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.
