Life lessons with Amanda...Dear Amanda

Dear Amanda,

Eleven years ago on November 6th at 1:43 in the morning,

you squeaked into existence.

All my life I only wanted to be a mom,

and in that instant you changed my life.

You changed me.

How did I get so lucky to get you as a daughter?

Thank you for giving me the honor of raising

such a compassionate, thoughtful, huge-hearted,

kind, beautiful, intelligent,

and simply amazing young woman.

Happy birthday Amanda...

I love you!

I don't know how many times I can say it but its true: I love your kids, Kim! They are cute AND witty. They make ms laugh and smile everytime you post about them. I can only imagine what they do for you on a daily basis :-)

Cute kid! And happy birthday to her!

I have 2 kids and they provide meaning and purpose in this twisted world where nothing makes sense. They keep me going when there are times I'm just ready to give up!

Kids are great but they grow up too fast!

Slyde if you happen to have any extra pics from 2008 can I borrow one or two? Can't wait to see your little guy if you put some photos up!

She is adorable! What a pretty girl! And 11 is such a delightful age. (Uh, 14, not so much! LOL!)

Happy Birthday, Amanda!
