Dear Paigemonster,

Today you turn 8. Time sure flies when you are having fun, and I must say that life with you is fun. You are a joy in our house. You are kind and you share and you are a peacemaker among your siblings. You are the first to volunteer to help and all you really want to do is please me. And I hope you realize that you do. I am more than pleased with you. Just watching you giggle and laugh makes me happy.

I remember when you were a baby and you would cry ALL.THE.TIME. Then you turned 2 and you were just difficult. Luckily you were adorable, because you were a pain. You were picky and whiney and always wanted to have your way. But somewhere over the past 4 or 5 years you turned into a heavenly child. I can always count on you to pull through for me. If I'm having a hard day, I know that you will be my rock.

You deserve the world my dear and I hope that you always know how much I adore you. I love how you snuggle and how you have to give me 50 hugs a night before bed. I love how you jump onto my side of the bed when you have nightmares and hold me all night long. I love how you say you aren't girly and hate the color pink, but when we do your hair all pretty you sneak peaks in the mirror and smile.

 Who wouldn't love this beauty?

 Little known fact: She was the first Monster. She was such a little devil that I called her Paigemonster and the name just sort of spread to all the other children. Before I knew it I had a house full of monsters, but it all came from her. She started it all. So happy birthday my little Paigemonster. My blue-eyed beauty.
