Minxy Mine

December 15, 2010

Miss Minxy Mine, you are now…nine.

Nine years ago today, you arrived–on your due date. It was your last obedient moment on this planet.

You are so many things, but of all the words I could use to describe you, Miss D-licious, the one most fitting would be full.

You live your life full-throttle, because there’s no other way you understand. Full happy, full sad, full speed ahead.

Your kindergarten teacher said, “You know what I love about D? I never have to guess how she’s feeling.” And truer words were never spoken. Every breath, every word, every action: you own it.

It’s a courageous, and often exhausting, way to live. Still, I watch you with the utmost admiration for your grit, your enthusiasm, and your commitment to living each moment as if it were your last.

My comedian, my diva, my  sparring partner, my little tsunami–Happy Birthday.  I’m not quite sure what planet you’re from, but this world is much richer with you in it. Every day, you make me laugh and tear my hair out and want to hold you too tightly, because a day is coming when I can’t anymore. But I will always try, Minxy mine.
