Happiest of Happy Birthdays


*Her own personal breakfast birthday cake, because, of course.

Jane is four today.

She believes in fairies.

She reads to herself late into the night.

She choreographs all her favorite movies and it’s like an off-off-off-off Broadway experience.

When I drop her at daycare she always says, “One more hug and one more kiss!”

She loves all living creatures. We have a lot of discussions about not touching snakes.

She wears a skirt or a tutu over pants. Always

She would eat macaroni and cheese every single day if I let her.

She steals flowers out of neighbor’s flower beds and gives them to me.

“Here,” she says. “This will make you happy.”

She is a little living sun. She spreads her warmth and cheer on everyone close by. I am blessed, over and above anything I could imagine or deserve, to be her mother. Happy birthday Jane. We love you to the moon and back, and back again.
