On her 13th birthday, 13 reasons I love Keaton

1.  She is quick.  Oh, that girl can make me laugh.

2.  She has beautiful, gorgeous big brown eyes.

3.  She’s the most frugal child I have.  Once she gets a dollar, she won’t let go.

4.  Because she’s frugal, she doesn’t want me to spend money.  This can be quite the pain as I have to justify anything I spend as she reprimands and evaluates my every. single. purchase.

5.  She won’t let me buy her new clothes.  She won’t let anyone buy her new clothes.  She wears the same old hand-me-down clothes and shoes year after year.

6.  She cracks me up regularly.  Did I already say she was funny?  Especially when she’s in a good mood.  But watch out for those bad moods.  They’re infamous.

7.  She cleans up sibling-vomit without being asked.  No really, she does and you can’t have her…she’s ALL MINE!

8.  She’s the first to ask if  I’m okay.

9.  She likes to fix my hair and it feels really good.

10.  She eats hummus with me:)

11.  She has the ultimate servant’s heart.

12.  Not only is she funny, which I might have already mentioned, but she is crack-your-rib hysterical and can command a room full of people with her wit.  They just sit and wait for her next one-liner.

13.  She makes me so very proud of her every single day no matter what.  I love being her momma!!

Happy birthday, sweet girl!  I love you so very much!!
