Happy Birthday Emry


As I was purchasing a birthday gift for Emry, the cashier commented that she liked my selection. I then indicated that it was for my daughters room. She then says "What? ... you have a daughter? ... Wow! In my mind I'm thinking is she implying that I "look" too young to have a daughter or that I must have a sorted, maybe somewhat promiscuous past? Then I thought to myself who cares! She thinks I look young. (quick take note as to what I'm wearing and how my hair and makeup are done, so I can recreate this look again and again) I still find the need to reassure her I'm 29 (forever I might add) She then proceeds to tell me that I look her age. "And what might that be?" I ask. "20" she replies. Wow, this chic is a horrible age guesser but I decide to take the compliment and be on my merry way. Now what does this have to do with Emry's Birthday? (besides the fact I was buying her a birthday present) Children have a way of making you feel older, and every time they have a birthday I get reminded of how old I'm getting. But I decided that's ok. Because I love having my girls and wouldn't trade any (yes any) of the moments I get with them for all the money in the world! So Happy Birthday to my Emry Bemry!

Happy Birthday Emry!!!!!!!
We love you and are happy you are part of OUR family.
I know what you mean when our kids make us feel old, imagine your baby turning 10, that's crazy.
What a nice compliment from the girl, I don't think she was implying anything other than you look young.
we will see you all tonight.

WOW - Emry is 4! That is such a fun age and I know from reading your blog she definitely is fun.
Take the compliment about looking young and run with it because it is a huge self esteem builder. You do have that great youthful look going for you though so get used to the compliments. Happy Birthday Emry!

I can't believe she is already 4! Before you know it she'll be school all day. They grow up so fast. Enjoy her while she is home.
