Oh. My. Gosh.
My dear girl, my dear Kate,
A few words to describe you: sweet, fierce, loyal, thoughtful and loving.
On the downside, you can lose your temper and take offense pretty darn quickly. We have to work on your tendency to put words into other people’s mouths, or assume that someone is out to hurt your feelings.
When you are in a good mood, you share it. You love making people laugh. You are still my cuddly girl. You are goofy and fun.
You work hard in school, and it is paying off. You have a close circle of friends. I am happy you decided to join the drama club. It’s the perfect outlet for your energy and creative nature.
And as a final positive note on your birthday, you are a great gecko mom. You simply love Baby. You take good care of him, keep his cage clean, and make sure he has crickets and water. You are such a good pet mom you keep asking for another pet. You want either a bird or a tarantula. I am not ready to commit to the former, and it’s a hard no on the latter.
I love you. Keep working hard. Keep making people laugh.
Happy birthday, baby girl.
