another birthday

 21 years ago I became a mom.

I have now been a mom for half of my life. How odd.

I can't fathom a life without my kids.

They alternately frustrate me, surprise me, make me laugh, break my heart, stun me with their awesomeness, fill me with joy.

I would not be the person I am, had I not had them in my life.

I love them. All of them.

But this one here, she was the first one to make me realize that I was forever changed.

birthday party

frogs were kissed
princess shoes were worn

presents were opened

candles were blown, and cake was eaten.

Ellie's 6th birthday was celebrated. Much fun was had.
