betty sue



From April 7th:

I would like to wish the HAPPIEST, Most JOYOUS, Most MAGNIFICENT 29th Birthday to my FIERCE, FABULOUS, MAGICAL, BELOVED Baby Unicorn, Betsy — an event which, in fact, VAPORIZES the Space-Time Continuum, seeing that I am only 27, myself.

When you came strutting and sashaying into my world almost three decades ago — already all GORGEOUS, GLAMOROUS, and GLITZY — you changed both me and my life FOREVER. It was through YOU that my still-baby self began the most marvelous journey that any woman can take…that of MAMA. And, so…we grew up together.

And, as I have always known since the very first time I laid eyes on your beautiful little face, that no matter what things I may succeed at in my life, if I fail as a mother, then NONE OF IT MATTERS. And, with that knowledge, every day for the past 29 years, I have kept my promise and gotten my fatass up every single day and given it my VERY BEST effort with all three of you. Even though sometimes I was far from perfect, I never failed to TRY MY VERY HARDEST.

And, as I gaze at you and your brother and sister today, at the KIND, LOVING, BRILLIANT, EXTRAORDINARY people you have become, I know in my Mama heart that Gregory and I and your Daddy and Bonus-Mama did good. We cannot wait to see what amazing things you will all do with your lives. I brought you here all those years ago, and we will be here for all of you FOREVER.

Happy Birthday, our BEAUTIFUL UNICORN, our SWEET Betty Sue. Any magic that I may posses, I most certainly passed onto all three of you — with supreme joy and adoration. Your Mousie Lou and your Piglet are SO PROUD of you we could JUST BURST and we will love you ALWAYS.

Now…GO GET ‘EM, Baby Girl.
