A thank you letter to my daughter on her 4th Birthday

This is a Thank You to my daughter,
who turns 4 years old today...

Thank you for teaching me how to love singing, even though I am terrible at it. 

Thank you for showing me how fun it can be to make fashion statements. (you wear anything and everything weather it matches or not)

Thank you for telling me I'm beautiful, especially on days when I feel anything but. (mommy your pretty, I love you)

Thank you for being so outgoing and asking every new person you meet their name. You're right, you never know when that might come in handy. (just like mommy, outgoing and always smiling)

Thank you for showing me how baths can really be like a mini spa vacation if you use enough bubbles. (you and sister can spend hours in the bath)

And I'll always be thankful for the way you ask "What's wong" if I ever look sad. 

Thank you for letting me brush your hair and tell you how beautiful you are over and over again. 

Thank you for making everyone around you smile with your funny little voice, and wired funny faces. (always laughing, smiling)

Thank you for dancing, not just simply walking, where ever you go. 

Thank you for teaching me patience. Because now I know, after saying "hey, Mom. Mom. Moooommmmmm!" and I don't answer right away, you're simply going to say "I love you!"

Thank you for never ceasing to just be yourself.

Thank you for always being so excited to see me. I feel the same exact way, kid. 

Thank you for showing us all what unconditional love is. Never wavering, never doubting, over and over again love. (mommy, I am angry with you but I still love you)

Thank you for starting each day with a clean slate and a great attitude. Even when you go to sleep after a rough day, I hear you get up the next morning, your tiny feet racing across the room, and you fling open your door, happy as can be to start your new day. 

Thank you for giving me a way to see the world from an entirely new vantage point. Everything is more intriguing, more impressive, there's more room to play, more reasons to laugh, more ways to be creative and more ways to enjoy the things that make us happy. 

Happy Birthday to the most beautiful girl in my world. I love you so much, Mila. Happy 4th year of being an amazing little girl.
