I’ve been writing stories about you since the day I found out you were in my belly. (I actually started writing this blog in 2006. Three years before you were born. But that’s another story…)
From the earliest moment, before you were born, I began preparing for you.
I wondered what color hair you would grow to have, and what color eyes… Would you look like me, or would you favor Daddy?
Would you be quiet and introspective, or loud and silly?
Who would you be?
Everyday I love picking you up from school because I love seeing your face.
Lila, on this day I celebrate what a remarkable young lady you are.
Each year I ask you a few questions.
Here are your answers for this year.
Wednesday, June 20th. 9:24 pm.
What is your favorite thing to do to help around the house?
To earn another medal in karate.
To read 10 chapter books.
To be kinder with my sister.
