Six and Five

Six years ago today, our little Tongginator entered this world, probably kicking and screaming, demanding to be heard. And five years ago today, the husband and I sat in a small dining room on the second floor of a Nanchang hotel, watching as four little ones began to smile for the first time in days. We'll never know whether it was the so-called Magic Day Three or the sweet taste of the Tongginator's first birthday cake that brought us all those much needed glimpses of the joy to come.

And the joy DID come.

I mean, just LOOK at that mouth.

Tongginator, I love you so very much. I love your belly laughs, your sweet spirit and your stubborn determination to remain true to yourself. I love how your quick mind (and mouth!) keeps me on my toes. I feel so blessed to have watched you grow these past five years. And I can't wait to watch you grow into the strong young woman I know you will become.

Happy birthday, honey bear. 我爱妳 (wo ai ni).

Happy Birthday to your sweet girl! Now today, she is allowed, encouraged, and expected to be as High Maintenance as she wishes.

BTW--I thought about you yesterday. They are replacing the playground equipment at my daughter's preschool, and can you believe it--no swings???!!! Mia is distraught. I think I'll have to do what you do and allow her to swing before school. WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT THAT WITH ALL THE SNOW?

I'm rambling.

Have a great day. Honor the Princess for me.
