After MUCH anticipation, watching & waiting as friends & cousins turned before her, kindergarten round-up, 5th Birthday party...It was an unforgettable delight to inform McKenzie of today's (June 4th) date.
Me: "Guess what today is?"
Me: "June 4th!"
Que the dear in the headlights look followed by an ear-to-ear smile
Kenzie: "You mean I'm 5 for real now?"
look of wonder and instant maturity ensues...tear...
I'm so proud and in love with my blue-eyed beauty. And thankful beyond measure, for this amazing angel, who five years ago today, gave me the most wonderful gift in all the world. SHE MADE ME A MOM!
