Today, my baby turns 10. And there is no way for me to possibly express how much joy, pride and love enter my heart every time I look at her. Even when she is doing gymnastics on the sofa with a mouthful of fruit loops and dirty soccer shoes.
As an only child, we probably spoil her a little more than most. Especially Grandma, WHO BOUGHT HER HAMSTERS! And in one week, they’ve only escaped twice, but that is beside the point, because she is, hands down, the sweetest spoiled child you will ever meet.
We celebrated Kenza’s birthday with a Makeover Sleepover party. Kenza and 3 of her good friend went to the salon and had makeovers and then we went to a hibachi dinner. I was really worried the fake hair might catch fire. But everyone survived long enough to eat cake, torture hamsters and gossip until 4 AM.
It was a good birthday, even though every year older she turns reminds me that the tortured puberty years are just around the corner and that I am also a year older. But if she stays this sweet, I won’t mind getting older with her.
