Thankful Thursday - This Kid

As many of you saw on Tuesday, my "baby" turned 5 this week.  She has an amazing little spirit, totally independent and fun, and today I'm thankful for her... my "surprise" baby.  The one who decided she'd start making her way toward life when her older sister was a mere 4 months old.  (Yes, my two girls are only 13 months apart.)

This picture is from her sister's princess birthday party.  My baby doesn't like dresses, and she certainly didn't want to be a princess.  While I almost got her to compromise with a Princess Jasmine costume (since it has pants, and all), I knew I was doomed when she found this king costume in a toy catalog.  A few clicks on Amazon later, and my little independent drummer got to masquerade as the only male royalty at the party.

And the other day, we were working on coming up with words that start with the letter Q.  After we'd turned in her project, that night on the car ride home, she told me, "Mommy, you forgot cucumber."  How cute is that?  And he's right, cucumber totally should start with a Q.

It's for these quirks and expressions -- and a million others -- that I love her and am so thankful for her. Who are you most thankful for this week?
