Mary Beth will turn ten tomorrow. Since the Loveliness of Babies Fair will be here tomorrow, I thought I'd post her birthday post today. Her brothers call her "Mini Mom" and though it irritates her, it is a fitting nickname. She is nurturing and competent, quite the lovely big sister. Still young enough to play with American Girl dolls and pretend to be living in a Little House, she is also showing a maturity that takes my breath away. Ten years seems such a short time ago! Mary Beth is a bigtime blogger and she absolutely adores her friends from the Cottage and the Glen. I laugh with their moms as we watch the second generation of cyber-buddies take shape. My first girl, I do so enjoy her and I'm so thankful for the chance to be a mother to such a dear girl. Happy Birthday, big girl!
