Emily Damali

Friday, May 21, 2010


Thank you for choosing me Emily.  Thank you for loving me when I was not loveable, for keeping me as your mother when I didn't want to be kept.


Thank you for being a joyful child, even when your mother could not be joyful.


We muddle through, the best we can, together. Usually laughing at something your father does not find funny.




I love you more than you can know - far more than I can tell you. And while I know that the upcoming years are going to be challenging, I think we can do it. 







Love you ,Schmoopa.  Happy 12th birthday.

Happy Birthday to your beautiful, brilliant, sparkling daughter.

How does your Schmoopa feel about younger men? Because I know a 9.5 year-old...

Madge beat me to it re the last photo-- she does look like you.

Happy Birthday, Emily!

It's the baleful regard, Ladies. I have passed it on successfully.

And Bobbie Sue - Emily has just learned what Testicles DO...so she is pretty grossed out by the male humans right now. I give her a year or so before boy-crazy settle back in...
