I gave Joy to the World when I brought my daughter into it. She is truly amazing. I spent the evening tonight with her at a workshop at a local children's play place making snowman cupcakes and playing with toys. She turned two and a half this week and the things she says and does just amaze me. She sang Patty Cake and If You're Happy and You Know It all the way through today and it was beautiful. She pretended to tuck me in, kiss me good night and said "Sweet dreams, Mommy..." in a quiet little whisper like I do to her every night. This kid will move mountains. If she brings half as much joy to the rest of the world as she does my life, this world will be a better place for having her in it.
