MK to Maddox: "Mommy is the boss around here!"
Maddox: "ANNNDD ME, Mei-Mei!"

Maddox to her patient, loving speech therapist: "Well, I can't work.  My cleft palate is hurting."

Me to Maddox: "Maddox, what did you learn about at church tonight?"
Maddox: "I don't know Mommy. Wait one minute, I think about it, ok?"
Me: "Ok.  Did you learn about God?"
Maddox:  "No.  I tell you that.  We learn we are mish-naries" (missionaries - a big word for a three year old!)

Happy Sixth Birthday, MK! (the first post:) )

Once there were two women, who never knew each other.  One you do not remember, one you call Mother.
 Two different lives shaped to make you one.  One became your guiding star, the other became your sun.
 The first one gave you life, and the second taught you how to live it.  The first gave you a need for love.  The second was there to give it.
 One gave you a nationality.  The other gave you a name.  One gave you a talent.  The other gave you aim.
 One gave you emotions.  The other calmed your fears. One saw your first sweet smile.  The other dried your tears.
 One sought for you a home that she could not provide.  The other prayed for a child and her hope was not denied.
 And now you ask me, through your tears, the age-old question unanswered through the years.  Heredity or environment, which are you a product of?
 Neither, my darling.  Neither.  Just two different kinds of love.

Mei-Kate, Mei-Mei, our sweet baby girl, may you always keep shining with success in your world.  Happy 6th Birthday!
