Seventeen years ago today, Sweetpea belted out her first cry. It was an amazing thing, as all births are, but this one was different because it was obvious from that very first sound this kid had a set of pipes. It sounded operatic and gave me chills.
She doesn’t take voice lessons or have any interest in singing. That doesn’t disappoint me. I want my children to do what makes them happy.
Sweetpea has many talents, she plays the violin and electric guitar. She loves music and art. She paints and draws well. Here is a drawing she had to turn in to her art class today.
That’s Jimmi Hendrix, one of her favorite musicians. The text which doesn’t show up too well here says, “Freedom, Give it to me.”
That’s so Sweetpea. Always independent. Always doing things her way. I love that about her.
She can also text message faster than I can talk. One day I’ll do a YouTube video of that, it will blow your mind.
Everytime a friend of Sweetpea has a birthday, she makes them cupcakes. So I made her a big cupcake looking birthday cake today.
