You've grown up so much over the year and even though we didn't win any card contests this year, and no tv appearances, it's been a fun year anyway.
You also got to have your first kid party this year-and after that crazy night with 8 screaming little girls, probably your last. :)
I'm just kidding. You had fun at your birthday, though maybe too much fun, because you woke up during the night and threw up 8 times.
A helpful tip for next year - please don't get up at 6:30 am the day of your birthday party because you are so excited.
As I watched you play with your new little friends, I don't worry about you being liked at school- a big fear of mine since you can be a wee bit bossy. I will still worry though, about your story telling habit and what your teacher will tell me next, like the day that you told her that I had a baby over the weekend.
You've changed your likes and dislikes over the year. I just love the fact that you love art like I did when I was your age, though your dad disagrees that being an artist is a good choice. He is just worried you'll be a "starving artist" and be living at home until you are 30.
I have to disagree, and look forward to see how your talent develops. Of course, you also want to learn how to play the guitar and be the next Taylor Swift. You already look like her, so who knows!
In the meantime, have fun being who you are and enjoy your day. Oh yeah, and stay away from those little boys in your class that keep tickling you and following you around in the morning while we wait for school to start! Argh!
