macaroni’s milestone

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

grandkids 8

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 😉

  1. She sounds like an awesome daughter the type of child everyone should have, and she has a brilliant mother to look after her, wishing Macaroni a very Happy 10th Birthday 🙂

  2. Wow – double digits already! Wishing Mararoni continued adventures through the eyes of a child today and throughout her life. Sending Happy Birthday Wishes (though belated) – enough to carry her through her double digit years. What a wonderful blog!
