My Girl is 3!



How can one not help but fall head over heels in love with a little girl who

…talks to her shadows and tells them to follow her as she walks along, because she’s the teacher?
…throws her arms around you, gives you a very tight squeeze, AND then plants wet, sloppy kisses on your cheek?
…drops what she’s doing and runs to her Daddy as soon as he comes in the door, shouting “Daddy!” and gives him a big hug and a kiss?
…says “Thank you! I love this; it’s my favorite!” when she gets small presents, any present from her Mommy and Daddy?
…sings along to songs at the top of her voice, even though she does not know most of the words?

…gets out of bed and hides behind a giant pillow on the window ledge –in the middle of the night –and leaves her mommy wondering and a bit worried to find an empty bed upon her return from getting her a drink of water from the kitchen, only to nearly jump out of her skin when this little girl peeks out from behind the pillow and says, “Boo, Mommy!”? (This was with her having a temperature of 101oF.)
…who cheers her mommy on during her many 1-minute Bejeweled games, chanting, “Go, Mommy go! GGGGGo, Mommy!”?
…pats her mommy’s back (or knee or whichever body part is within her reach at the time) and wisely advises, “It’s okay, Mommy. Just a game…” when her Bejeweled-addicted mom expresses disappointment at her score on Bejeweled?
…stages dancing contests and arranges the chairs around a “dance floor” and wants us to be her “audience”?
…shushes us and tells us not to talk to her while she works on her jigsaw puzzles; then when she finishes, says, “Now you can talk to me”?
….immediately rushes over and asks, “What happened, Mama?” whenever she hears me go Oh, no! and then proceeds to pat me and say, “It’s okay. Everybody makes mistakes sometimes”?
…whose theme song is Big Girl (You Are Beautiful)?

Zoë is turning 3 today. Every day spent with this little girl is a blessed day. She is equal parts diva and darling. And we love her to bits. Happy birthday, Big Girl. (And yes, she is getting another cake today.)
