Happy Birthday to my Wonderful Daughter!

006 Happy Birthday to my amazing daughter, CP, who is 8 today! I cannot believe that she is already 8…time just flies by so quickly! CP is truly an amazing girl and I am so grateful to have her in my life and the opportunity to spend my days with my two fantastic daughters. They will never really know how much they mean to me, but I try to show them in little ways every day.

I have included the lyrics to Taylor Swift’s song The Best Day. The first time I heard this song and listened to the lyrics I started to cry and have cried many times listening to it since. (I’m actually getting choked up right now just thinking about it!). It’s a reminder to me that life is precious and that our children are only little for a very short time.  This is another reason why I feel so blessed to be spending my days with CP & NP and teaching them so many wonderful and important things and spending time with them during these little years when they see the wonder in the world around them.

I want so many things for my children, but most of all – health, happiness and safety. Let’s continue to enjoy all the small things that life brings us and remember to enjoy every moment.

I love you CP!

The Best Day lyrics
Songwriters: Swift, Taylor Alison;

I'm five years old, it's getting cold, I've got my big coat on
I hear your laugh and look up smiling at you, I run and run
Past the pumpkin patch and the tractor rides, look now, the sky is gold
I hug your legs and fall asleep on the way home

I don't know why all the trees change in the fall
But I know you're not scared of anything at all
Don't know if Snow White's house is near or far away
But I know I had the best day with you today

I'm thirteen now and don't know how my friends could be so mean
I come home crying and you hold me tight and grab the keys
And we drive and drive until we found a town far enough away
And we talk and window shop 'til I've forgotten all their names

I don't know who I'm gonna talk to now at school
But I know I'm laughing on the car ride home with you
Don't know how long it's gonna take to feel okay
But I know I had the best day with you today

I have an excellent father, his strength is making me stronger
God smiles on my little brother, inside and out, he's better than I am
I grew up in a pretty house and I had space to run
And I had the best days with you

There is a video I found from back when I was three
You set up a paint set in the kitchen and you're talking to me
It's the age of princesses and pirate ships and the seven dwarfs
And Daddy's smart and you're the prettiest lady in the whole wide world

And now I know why the all the trees change in the fall
I know you were on my side even when I was wrong
And I love you for giving me your eyes
For staying back and watching me shine
And I didn't know if you knew, so I'm takin' this chance to say
That I had the best day with you today

  1. Happy Birthday, CP! Hope the three of you have a fun day at school together, today :)

    P.S. I got the job! I've been teaching the 3/4 class since last Thursday and feel like I'm barely keeping my head above water right now which explains my absence. I'm looking forward to feeling more settled in soon.
