nine is fine

Today my youngest child is nine and very fine.  Just last night at dinner, my then eight year old, said, "Only 4 more hours til I am nine - but I wish I were ten!"  I being the mother who must look for the good in all, yes, but "Nine is fine and did you know that the chinese love the number 9, for it is powerful and very lucky!"   This morning - she drew this sweet drawing for me and we are planning to go have a special lunch out with her big brothers and this evening are the Swim Team Awards for a great summer season!  This is her third summer on the swim team and making it to the Westchester County Finals!  

We also have a concert in our local park which are always fun.  It is the type of place where everybody knows your name.  (I know the lead singer and am in hopes he will sing a special song!)  Life at nine is very fine.  As her swim coach says, "I mean really, can it be any better than this?"  
Happy Birthday number three to being nine!

Happy Birthday # 3!!!!! (when they turn 9, does the memory of what you were doing exactly 9 years ago, fade away???)

Happy Birthday Miss Fine 9! It's the best year ever. So much better than those horrible double digits. Enjoy it. The friends down the hill and around the block will see you later with a little surprise.
Much love for W,K,W and K and J

Hey Patricia- I just wanted to let you know that everytime I try to reply back to one of your comments on my site- it comes back undelivered. I've tried for a week now and it's still not going through (and all other mail goes through...hummm...). I'm using this address: pve@pvedesign.com. Do I have the right one?

Patricia - my birthday, too! Tell your daughter I've had so many great August birthdays - no other holiday in August, so it's all about me.

Be the change..... said...

I remember 9...it was my golden birthday and I thought nothing could be sweeter.
I hope you were able to partake in that "special song" and tell that sweet pea of yours "Happy Birthday!"

My eldest turned nine the other week. It's a dear age, full of increasing independence . . .
