Happy Birthday, Sweet Girl

Today Mia is eight.  
Her ears are now pierced, she attempts to fix her own hair, and her teeth are huge.
 She is the most wonderful eight-year-old girl I have ever met.
 She's complicated, bossy, sensitive, nurturing, and inherently creative.
She's her Father in drag.
 And I wouldn't have her any other way.
Happy 8th birthday, Mia.  
Your party isn't planned, I haven't gotten to the store to get you a present yet, and your birthday outfit isn't ironed.  
And yet you love me anyway.  
I'm so blessed to be your frazzled Mommy.

From now on, all of your house pictures will look fabulous, open, and airy. Forget the house, that is the sweetest eight year old girl I have ever seen. I love her hugs, I love the way she thinks when you are speaking to her, I love that she is serious yet silly, and I love that she can get along with anyone. She is precious, and I would do anything for that sweet big-toothed eight year old. Never change Mia R.

Love you, sweet girl. I can't believe it's been 8 years since you commanded your first audience in the hospital room. Your very own entourage at 10 minutes old, and we're still in awe!
