Miss (newly) 8

Having only known my husband as an adult, I cannot possibly say for certain what he was like as a child. Yet, when I look at my (newly) eight-year-old girlie I feel like I have a good idea. She is so focused, (mostly on video games). She speaks so passionately and earnestly (mostly about video games). She spends so much time in deep thought (mostly about, you guessed it, video games). My husband is somewhat of a grown up and understands that life isn’t always about video games (though it mostly is) but he still does all of those things and I can only assume that his propensity toward them was increased as a small child. Having said that I wouldn’t trade her for anything. A day doesn’t go by without her teaching me something I didn’t know or that I didn’t know I didn’t know.  She is amazing and thoughtful, and she makes me, not just a better mom, but a better person. Happy Birthday Miss M!
