              Happy 6th Birthday Nora. I love you

The apple didn't fall too far from the tree did it my girl? You are an amazing little woman in training. I have every confidence you will move mountains. Remember to be kind to everyone. No one is better then anyone. Everybody deserves the same rights as you do. Do not ever let anyone tell you different. DO NOT allow any one's opinions override what you feel is right, that includes me. Only you will know what is best and right for you.

Do not laugh unless something is actually funny, pretending to laugh to make a boy feel good is dumb. Don't ever fight with any of your girlfriends over a boy. No man is worth losing a girlfriend over. Always take care of your brothers and be nice to the women in their lives. You are a powerful force and will be intimidating. Be welcoming to them, teach them how to make our family cookies from the chocolate chip bag and tell them it's our family secret. Never get involved in any fight. Stay neutral and show everyone love.

Dress the body you have, not the body you want. Always have at least one good bra. Never make any major life decision under pressure of someone else. You do not need to get married if you don't want to. You can get married 5 times if you want to. You can have no children or a house full. You are the boss of you.

Try lots of new things. Make mistakes, and then make more. That's the best way to learn. (make good decisions too.) But remember no matter what you pick and what you do, you can ALWAYS change your mind, or pick a new direction. It might not be easy, you can't choose the consequences of your decisions, but if you do want to change your mind, I will always support you.

You are welcome for those eyebrows and cheekbones.

Have fun, be happy and know you and the boys are the greatest things I have ever done, and motherhood is my greatest accomplished in life. Sorry you never got a sister, you'll just have to pick good girlfriends and they can be your sisters. That's what mine are.

You are pure gold kiddo.

I love you
