Sarah


     
               Hey Sarah remember the other day when we were in the mall and you were annoyed at that little bratty kid screaming and his mother was dragging him by the arms with the look of defeat and I was laughing?? I was laughing because that was YOU.


Watching that young mom sweating and gritting her teeth while trying to keep it together was me 13 yrs ago.  Some days I though I was going to have to sell you to the gypsies...little did I know those would be some of the best memories of my life.


From the day I found out I was pregnant to the night my water broke..to when they actually let me leave the hospital with an actual human baby..I had no idea what I was doing.



You were cute yet challenging and I swear you were plotting against me all times..weather it was you waking up suddenly and screaming for what seemed like an eternity while I was trying to take a shower or you puking in the car seat when we had to be somewhere, you always had your own agenda.


Toddlerhood...You didn't just have the terrible two's..you had terrible 3's, 4's, & 5's...you were so stubborn...but I'd give anything to hear your little voice say "Sawah"


I remember your first real booboo, the first time you were sick and how you always wanted to be in your underwear dancing (yes I have that on video)...you could go from sweet to sour in an instant.




I've said "Sarah No" more times that I can count and kissed your face just as many times..







 Today you are far from that Bratty toddler (well sometimes) and I am proud to say not only did we both survive the last 14 years..but I didn't screw you up as bad I though I was..no seriously..




You are smart and sweet..beautiful and amazing..talented and persuasive (not enough to get your long board early) funny and sarcastic..witty and sassy and you still have the ability to push me to the brink of insanity in 60 sec or less.



You are one of the best things that has ever happened to me..I am beyond proud to call you my
daughter.

 I love you more than anything else in this world.

Love, Mom
