Ever have those days never go right and it just seems like one disaster after another? Yeah, well. That’s been my summer.
A couple of weeks ago, C had a treadmill accident at my moms. My nephew and A were playing on it and well, Emily Margaret pushed her onto it. Were you aware that treadmills will take off a good layer of skin and make you look like a burn victim? Well. They will! Just one more reason to hate the treadmill, I guess. Anyway, we got her checked out at the doctor and she was fine, just extremely scraped up. I must say, Sylvadine cream must be made from Angel tears, because after 2 weeks, she’s almost healed.
I let them out at the door and A reached out to hold C’s hand, and C looked like she was on top of the world walking in with her big sister, and I made eye contact with the principal and promptly lost it. It was too much for me to handle and I felt like I was walking around with my heart outside of my body all day.
So, that’s what we’ve been up to… what about you??
Dear my sweet and sassy Addy,
You are 6 today. SIX. Where did the time go?!
You are well on your way to being a little lady.
You are just girly enough.. You love a good dress and an awesome lip gloss, but forget a hair bow or a purse.
I know we do and we will continue, to butt heads. You are too much like me for us not too. Which works, since you are a Daddy’s Girl and he listens to what I say.
Addy, I want so much for you out of life. Your personality alone, demands that the world be at your finger tips and I want that for you.
I have no doubt in my mind that if you can dream it up, you will make it happen for yourself.
I look at you, and see so much of myself at that age. Your initial shyness in new situations, your inability to express yourself with words when upset, and just your general gigglyness.
But sometimes, you just need to curl up with your Mama and that’s okay too.
You’re in Kindergarten now.. I am not sure where the time has gone, but I am ready to sit on you to make you stop growing.
One, with a fire and spirit that is untouchable. If I can leave you with one quote that I want you to remember always, it’s “Don’t let anyone ever dull your Sparkle.”
Addy wee, you sparkle and shine. I want that for you always.
Happy Birthday, sweet girl! I hope being SIX rocks your face off.
