My baby girl -
You turn 9 today. How do I have a 9 year old??! The time is flying by but you know what ... I wouldn't have it any other way. Having you has taught me how to appreciate the here and now. I can't afford to wish for tomorrow because I know I'll miss today.
You are kind, thoughtful and fair. You are smart, creative and driven. You're not afraid to lead but more importantly you're not afraid to listen. Keep it up my champ! You're doing great.
I love you. I'm so proud of you. Happy Birthday!! ... Now let's go make some slime.
