Happy Birthday, Bee!


Dear Bee,

8 years ago yesterday, landisdad and I were in the hospital, wondering what we had just gotten ourselves into.  Little did we suspect, way back in September of 1999, that we would one day be hosting a luau birthday party, complete with a limbo stick.

You are more amazing at eight than I ever believed possible. I can start to see the teenager, and young adult that you are becoming, and I like her.

Every morning, I wake up wondering what we’ll talk about on the way to school, and what funny stories of third grade you’ll come home with.

Have a wonderful year, darling girl.

Love, Mommy

    I’m so glad you like her, landismom. That is really just the most awesome feeling. To know that you’d like them, even if they weren’t yours. And then gloating that they are!

    Happy birthday. (My mom and wife think birthdays should be about the mom, not the kid.)
