"People will kill you over time, and how they'll kill you is with tiny, harmless phrases, like: 
'be realistic.'" --Dylan Moran

"A lot of parents will do anything for their kids, except let them be themselves." --Banksy

my mom is her family. that is what my mom does. so devoted. i love she never misses a sports game of the kids, i love at times she thinks she is taking a picture but the camera is on video and we get a long video of randomness. i love her white hair. i love she always has her shoes off. i love her. she helps me so much.
march is my mom's and charly's birthday month.  somehow mom gets overshadowed by char. mom even helped put together charly's party.
charly is amazing. she is so capable and lovable. her 14th birthday party was the most elaborate yet. lots of kids, moving all the furniture out of the house, laser lights synced with music, cotton candy machine, fire pit, food...i am exhausted.
i cannot wait to see the many birthdays to come. i hope each one celebrates this occasion with style and joy, because if there is anything to be celebrated in this world it is the birth of her.
i hope her teenage years have birthdays full of wild dancing and friends, her twenties have birthdays spent in lands like Italy and Switzerland, her thirties with family and possibly a spouse who feeds her soul and understands her needs, her forties with her growing children who will worship her, her fifties with her old mother who she will be taking care of, her sixties with her church crew and grandbabies.
char, i hope each birthday you will continue to celebrate without abandon. i will be there for everyone of them.
