Happy Birthday Princess.
Who ruled a kingdom nice and serene
When into their lives a princess arrives
With a sparkling smile and twinkling eyes.
She brings joy to their lives with every day
And they love her in each and every way!
She’s been ruling their lives for 5 fun filled years,
And they look forward to more laughter and tears!”

My darling not-so-little girl,
Looking back over those pictures, it’s hard to believe how much you’ve grown. You are so smart and so well spoken, I often forget that you’re only 4 sob 5.
You are such a treasure. From your loving heart, your vivacious laughter, your sense of humor, your compassion and your beautiful personality… you are everything I could ever have asked for in a daughter, and more.
I am blessed to be your mother, the one chosen to teach you, guide you, love you and cherish you.
There will be times that I will yell at you, there will be times we both say things we don’t mean, but there will never be a time that you are not loved, a time you are not cherished, a time where I am anything but thankful for you.
I have always known and understood love, your father taught me a different level of love but you, you my darling daughter, you taught me a love like no other.
You are borne of my body, my heart, my soul and my mind.
You are smart, funny, strong, beautiful, compassionate, silly, confident, loving, temperamental, friendly, energetic and amazing.
I hope that at 15, 25, 45, 95… you retain all of these qualities. I will do my best to stand back and allow you to live, fall, experience, fail and triumph. I will try to never stand in your way, to allow you to fall because the biggest disservice I can do you would be to never let you fail. But I promise that I will always and forever be there to pick you back up, kiss away the tears, whisper I love you and nudge you back towards the right path. You are my firstborn. My only daughter. My always and forever Princess Stinkerbelle.
I love you more than words.
Happy Birthday Darling.
