C was born on Good Friday and now we are back to her birthday on a Good Friday, full circle. It certainly was a Good Friday for our family!

If I could freeze time and capture C right as she is at this moment, I would certainly do it. Ten has been such a wonderful age for my beautiful girl.

C is tender hearted, sweet and helpful. She has a tender heart and a determined spirit. We have the best conversations and I love hearing her political, social and introspective insights.  She is a peace maker like her mama and a critical thinker like her dad. 

This has been a year filled with  wonderful learning and growing for C. I'm seeing such strides in her learning. She is really wanting those good grades and working so hard towards them.There's a big push at the end of her swim races to beat that personal best time and to place. She is also calm and tries her best presenting and performing (her violin) in public for for adjudication, something a lot of adults still struggle with. She is obsessed with skiing and loved this winter!

C is such an easy kid. She can make her meals, clean up after herself and entertains herself well. A book and a snack and she will be AWOL for hours! 

C is always up for a good time and lots of laughs. She keeps me current with life 'hacks' from Youtube, the most popular music and what's 'in' and 'out'.  She is obsessed with baking shows and is always wanting to try a new experiment in the kitchen. She made her first three course dinner for the family with no help!

Here are the questions I usually ask her on her birthday. They have begun to get very excited over this little tradition of ours.

When C found out she was having a quarantine birthday,  though initially a little bummed, she is determined to have the best day planning it out with her favourite foods, no school work (ha!), and a movie in the night. True to form, she knows how to make lots of delicious lemonade with any lemons she may have in her possession. She is now super stoked for her special day. Don't worry, C! Mama's got your back. 

Happy #11, kid! You're now officially allowed to call yourself a pre-teen. 
May you never lose that sparkle in your spirit and that joy in your heart! 


  1. I like how she thinks! Being a homeschooling mom we're always home for our kids birthdays and while they do get birthday parties with friends we do let them plan what we'll do (or not do) on their actual birthdays. Each and everyone of them declares a no school day and take over our meal planning so they can make sure they have their favorite foods without having to cook or help. I hope she has a wonderful day.

  2. Happy birthday! Great answers to your annual questions!


Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
