Tomorrow my baby turns seven
How can it be that I am the mom of a seven-year-old? Tomorrow, my sweet lil' Magpie turns the big seven. I can't believe it.
It's going to be an extra-special celebrating kind of day because it's also the third night of Hanukkah and she is just rubbing her hands together in anticipation of what kind of present load a Hanukkah-birthday gets you.
And because we live in these kinds of times, we also had an erev birthday celebration tonight and will continue the birthday festivities right through Sunday night.
But I'm not complaining. You're only seven once, baby.
Happy Birthday, Magpie. I'll never again get to tuck six-year-old you in for bed.
Here are some of my favorite pics of you from when you were wee, just 'cause I like to be nostalgic on your (erev) birthday.
