Maya Turns EIGHT! 50 questions answered by an 8 year old!

You’re EIGHT. I spent the entire day laboring with you EIGHT years ago.  I tell you all the time, that when the doctors gave you back to me after you were washed and clean and smelling like a MILLION BUCKS… I said “I’ve waited my ENTIRE life to meet you.”  I’m still in awe of what God gave me every single day I look at you. You help me be a better person. You help me see the funny things in life. You made me a MOM. Maya Elizabeth, you’re EIGHT years old and you are everything I could have hoped for thus far.  Yesterday, my phone rang while I was in the grocery store and when I answered it, It was your teacher Mrs. Bolotin. She called because she said she wanted to just let me know what a JOY you were to have in her class. That you are helpful and funny and kind. She said if she could have a classroom FILLED with nothing but Maya’s, she would be the happiest teacher EVER. She said that she had a moment to re-look at the GET TO KNOW ME PAGE I filled out at the beginning of school and read what I had written about you. She said I wrote: Maya is a joy to be around. She’s known to get the “best teachers helper award” shes KIND, and THOUGHTFUL and smart. You can hold a conversation with her and forget that she’s 7 (and that was said by her KINDERGARTEN TEACHER). Your teacher said “MOM- YOU’VE CHECKED ALL THE BOXES. YOU’RE DOING SUCH A WONDERFUL JOB RAISING HER.  I JUST FELT THE NEED TO CALL AND LET YOU KNOW THAT TODAY.”  <<–enter allll the mom tears here>>


So I’m starting something new that I found… Each year, I’m going to ask you and your sister 50 questions and your first answer is THE answer. I keep a log of all the funny things you say and this will be entered in it as well. Because one day I want to be able to say I can remember what you wanted to be when you were 8, and I also remember your favorite color and all the things that over time, sometimes slips away.


Happiest of Happy Birthdays MAYA! Your father and I are incredibly blessed to have such a SPECTACULAR daughter. We wish you everything the world can give you and pray for God to continue to guide you and show his love in every moment that you breathe.
