Diva's Day

"It sometimes happens, even in the best of families, that a baby is born. This is not necessarily cause for alarm. The important thing is to keep your wits about you and borrow some money."
-Elinor Goulding Smith

 Seven years ago today this little diva made me a mom.

It has been the best and worst and most glorious and most frustrating role of my life. Someone, and I can't remember who because my brain cells have deteriorated with each child, once said that "being a mother is the hardest job you'll ever love."

True dat.

So happy birthday to my only daughter.
Without you, this house would have way TOO much testosterone flowing through it. And I'm pretty sure none of the boys would be as honest about how clothes look on me as you are.
I love you, sweet girl!


  1. great quote, i will have to remember that one.

  2. I remember coming to visit you in the hospital and seeing this itty bitty baby girl! So tiny. Can't believe she is 7 years old! Happy Birthday Emma Grace.
