In our family, Australia Day has always been a double celebration
January 26th is also my Nanna’s birthday
She is truly is the jewel at the top of our family tree
A beer drinking, burping jewel
She’s already smarter than me
She loves playing the cello and having sleepovers
Her favourite time of the year is right now, because d’uh…Halloween!
Her crazy long legs have brought her up to just about eye level with me
She’s the cool kid her little sister wants to be
She loves surprises, scary movies, Lancelin and Rainbow Loom bracelets
All she wanted for her birthday was a skateboard and a little brother
One out of 2 ain’t bad
She’s thoughtful, funny and the most prolific reader I’ve ever known, and and always has at least 3 books on the go. Her favourite this week is Little Women, which she wants me to read too….but hello? Have you seen the SIZE of that book?
What I DO love to read, is anything Macaroni writes….she can write the shit out of a good story
She loves Thin Lizzie, Billy Joel, The Rolling Stones and old Elton John
She’s a thinker, she’s a giggler, she’s a great friend
Whatever ‘it’ is, this kid oozes it.
And as far as daughters go…
We’re pretty lucky to call her ours
Happy Double digits Macaroni
You’ve given us an incredible 10 years so far, and being your Mum is truly, the best thing that ever happened to me
And for that, I might even “UNbreak” iTunes for ya today 😉
She loves animals, her family, her teacher, old fashioned purses, animals, salad, swimming, being tickled, animals, Smurfs, her big sister, summertime, telling jokes, animals, dancing and animals
Every day I’m amazed at just how much cheekiness, compassion, hilariousness, kindness and cuddles, can fit into one little person
I couldn’t be more proud of this special girl, she’s a fucking amazing human
Happy 8th Birthday Magoo
I want to be you when I grow up.
