…is that today is her twelfth birthday. And I’m clearly the one with the problem here. My baby is growing up nicely and I’m fighting it all the way.
My LFG birthday tribute from a couple of years ago was an effusive one and you can view it here. I’m gonna try to keep this year's mention a bit less sappy.
Why? Because LFG is a young lady now and she’s calling me out for being too mawkish and sentimental. She declared it again last week when we walked up to my elementary school for the eleventh time since she’s been old enough to walk. "Dad, you've told me this already."
So here’s to you my rising seventh grader who made one “B” on your report card this past year. Mother to one Reiley FG, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
LFG, you are gonna flip when we ride out to Middleburg next week to pick up your birthday present that I commissioned!
I Love You. Immeasurably.
