How can you possibly be 15? Last year, I swear, you were 6.
I am so proud to be your mama. You are sweet and strong and the funniest person that I know. You sing show tunes, make art, share funny TikToks, dance around the house and are kind to your brother (most of the time). You understand people’s feelings and go out of your way to make people feel special and seen. You love fiercely and laugh often.
I hope that today, even though it’s the first day back to school and dance that you know how loved you are, and that you have a good birthday. Because it’s not everyday that “yer young [non-binary person] terns , now is it?” (To paraphrase Hagrid).
I love you so much and am so proud of you. Happy birthday, sweetheart. ❤️
