Saying My Goodbyes

I'm off to spend my very last day with a 3 year old Kyra Shea.

I didn't cry at last year's birthday but this year I think I might.

Dearest 3,
This has been an awfully wonderful year. You have shown me Kyra's true personality, both the good and the bad. I'm happy to report most of this 3rd year has been wonderful.
I'm going to miss you 3. You really are the magic number.

Dear 4,
You have a lot to live up to. But I'm not going to worry about you just yet. I'm still soaking up 3 for these last 24 hours. Your time will come. Until then, don't rush, we'll see you soon enough.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to stare at my baby while she's asleep before I, too, head off to bed. And yes, I'll probably shed a tear, because I love that girl, damn it. She's a wonderful 3 year old kid. Even if it is for one more day.


  1. awww ... HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KYRA!! don't cry too much, Alicia! Love from Nebraska!

  2. gah, that "anonymous" comment was me ... sorry!
