She loves me

Wednesday, May 04, 2011

For my birthday last week, Emily presented me with this card:

And no, that isn't a beer mug.  It is a coffee cup. She also enclosed a 2 dollar coin with the instructions to "Get a cup of joe on me".

Of course, she HAS had words with other girl. Last week , the other girl tried to exclude her from a conversation and told her to leave.

Emily started to walk away and then - and in her words, "I began to channel You, Mom" - she turned and gave the girl a verbal dressing down.

This included swearing, she later tearfully confessed to me.  My sweet girl gets very upset when she thinks she thinks she has broken the rules.

I soothed her tears with the explanation that sometimes only swearing can properly convey the emotion you are trying to get across.

In my life, I have only ever experienced true unconditional love with one person - Emily.   Her willingness to love me above and beyond shines through any other storm I am managing.

And just because, here are some bonus pictures from Our adventures:

Awww! Your little girl is very sweet. I wish I could have channeled you when the other girls tried to leave me out, back in the day!

Did she almost write crazy and then change her mind? Too funny!
Such a sweet and thoughtful card and gift!

Dawn said...

Exactly Bridgett - She did start to write crazy - then thought better of it.
