Oh Haley, you are three and thriving and I want to bottle up your sunshine and laugh and carry it in my pocket, always. What would I do without you these days? They have been so hard and trying for a multitude of reasons, but atleast they aren't empty. You are pure comic relief in a house where stresses and bills and worries and laundry seem to pile up and take over. You are superhero capes made of scrap fabric, a baby lion's roar in footed pajamas, princess crowns constructed of old headbands, and a sassy model compliments of size 6 heels that even i am not brave enough to wear. You are independent and funny and the best little helper. You are a cup of hot cocoa and a bowl full of macaroni and cheese served with a huge heaping of imagination and a side of chipped nail polish. You are "the wheels on the bus" and "oh, christmas tree" with a whole lot of missing words but a whole lot of heart. You are a bunch of "why's" and a little bit of a tattle tale... but i'll let it slide because you are a still a wonderful big sister.
You are my shooting star (with a food baby)... and i cherish you so! <3
