Today is my oldest stepdaughter’s birthday…she is NINE.
When I met her, she was only four years old.
When I started this blog? Five.
I have watched go from a super smart four-year-old to a dang-near genius nine-year old. The kid is smarter than most people I know. Heh.
She loves every dog in the house for the pets, her iPhone for the music, her sister for the playing, and her Daddy for the hugs.
I’m pretty sure she will grow up to be a Doctor, or an architect.
The Doctor part, because she insisted on performing surgery when she was four. I am still not sure what was wrong with my leg, but when she stabbed it with something sharp and I screamed, “Owwww!” She laughed evilly……
Or an Architect because that girl can build two-story forts in the living room, and a five-room house with blankets below it. The construction site is
a disaster amazing.
She insists on calling me Mom. I am her step-mom…..she knows this. I couldn’t and wouldn’t take her Mom’s place. Her Mom has a kinship with her that can never be replaced. She loves her Mom more than anything. But I know why she does it. I had a step-dad and I HATED the step part. I felt like it took something away from what he was to me. So I get it. I am her mom (step) and I am so proud to be that to her.
This young lady is, no doubt, going to take the world by storm.
She is everything bright, fun, and beautiful and I love her with all my heart.
Happy 9th Birthday to my girl Molly!
In another news, we are frantically preparing for the big Gender Reveal party tomorrow. I can’t believe IN ONE DAY I will know if it is a GrandGirl or a GrandBoy. I am excited beyond belief and busy, oh so busy, getting allllllllll the pink and blue stuff together.
I will definitely post photos!
Hope everyone is doing well.
