Comments: SIX!

Six! I can't believe it. Hope she had a fabulous day.

My four y.o. has a "lively" personality as well - higher highs and lower lows. I wouldn't trade her for anything, though her hard-headedness can be a challenge. I continue to pray for God to bless me with a good memory of her and the other kidlets so I'll have something to enjoy in about fifteen years. I know I won't have the strength to chase after grandkids!

One of the funniest episodes I remember is when she could not yet aspirate "h" but had learned the word "hassle". And she liked to apply it -- as a verb? an adjective? who knows? -- to her brother and mother and father. This was entertaining in itself, but you also had people working around the house at the time, well within earshot. Very recently this incident came up in connubial conversation. It seemed oddly on point and, four years or so on, still cracks us up :)

Me: P, who took a bite out of every apple in the bowl you knocked off the table and broke this morning? Did you do it? P: No. Me: Did your brother do it? P: (giggling) No. Me: Did the dog do it?!?! P: "HOBBES nibbow appow!"

Hobbes nibbled the apples, indeed. She is so fun.

Happy, happy birthday to little miss P! Maybe the reason I never got my girl was that I couldn't handle having a mirror (even one with a lovely name!)...
