Tomorrow is my younger daughter's birthday. She's as sweet a person as you'll ever hope to meet, and I feel soooo lucky to have her in my life.
Here's just one example of the way she's always been able to make me laugh:
When my two girls were five and three, my mother took them shopping to buy me a gift. I got home from work that day and found them so excited they were about to burst. As if to convince themselves, they kept repeating that they couldn't tell me what was in the package, that I'd just have to wait until the next day to open it. And then there was this:
5-year-old: "I'm gonna give you one hint: It's something for your office."
Me: "Ooooh, goooood, now don't tell me anything else, 'cause I want to be surprised."
3-year-old (dancing around in a frenzy): "Well, she got to give you one hint, so I'm gonna give you one hint, too: When you look at it, you're gonna know what time it is."
Happy birthday, Sweetheart. I love you sooooo much!
