more sugar (and spice)

…lots of it.

she’s feisty this one; like a kitten. a wild kitten. she’s the girl i always wanted, and then some. funny thing is, she was so mellow when she was a baby. really. she would hang out and sleep and eat and poop and then sleep some more. i could count on just my fingers the rough nights we had her first 6 months; which is to say, not many.

she is such a girl. and i don’t mean in the “everything must be pink” or “please refer to me as princess” kind of girl…no. (this is a child, after all, who names one of her favorite colors as black). i mean in the “just because i like it doesn’t mean i want it” or “just because i said it doesn’t mean i meant it” kind of way. she kind of takes that whole idea of it being a woman’s right to change her mind to a whole new level. she makes you work.

i wish i were more like her; i do not doubt that her attitude will serve her well in life. 

i love you, my sweet and spicy “miss do”. happy third birthday.

vow

i’ll make you a statement,

an offer of the heart

for you to clutch

once the rush of this day is through.

it is this:

that i will walk beside you,

as we stumble through this life, 

in Love;

and i will stay there, if you’ll wait up for me, through all that it brings.

-september 26, 1998

 

happy anniversary, honey. i love you.
