Today, my baby girl, my lil’ ladybug girl, Ms. Magoo, turns 4!
I cannot believe how fast the time has gone by. I can’t believe that she isn’t a baby anymore! Sob…
While I wipe my tears away, I can’t help but smile.
I smile at the amazing little girl that I see before me. This little girl who has such a strong mind, definite likes and dislikes, preferences, plenty enough that we can only laugh as we shake our heads, interests that surprise and delight me, and a heart so tender and loving.
Every day I realize that I am the one learning. My little girl is, and has been since the day she arrived in my arms, teaching ME. She is the teacher that opens my eyes and so often she is the spark that re-ignites the fires of my own interests, beliefs, dreams… Simply by being herself, she inspires me in so many ways.
Happy Birthday my sweet girl! Live, love, learn and grow, be all that you can be… I love you baby!!
