today she is five.
every day she brightens my life.
she greets each day with excitement and joy.
she refuses to eat a sandwich without dismantling
she skips rather than walks.
she always has pockets full of acorns and glass.
she slept in a santa hat for an entire year.
she kicks my seat in the car relentlessly.
her face is the first thing i see each morning.
and i wouldn't change one. single. thing.
happy birthday to our treasure.
