And then, in a flash, My Little was Six

How on earth…

Processed with Snapseed.

Six years ago tonight, our second, known to you as Little, sailed into this world, our world, like greased lightening. She was truly ‘herself’ from the moment she took a breath outside of the warm comforts of uterine living. When she ‘eye-spied with her little eye,’ Big, her shvester (sister) it was love at first sight. We were two proud mommas (I of course was much less sore, stricken only with awe and true love at the strength, power and beauty of my Mrs.). It’s one of the benefits listed on the gay agenda when  a lesbian couple – sharing clothes, shoes and birthing.

My Little, what to say… She speaks her mind and she claims her space. Sure, she learns and emulates Big, but she is not at all afraid to look outside the box, color outside of the lines and speak her mind, all while singing a merry tune, real, or made up. This girl, she has pipes. She can croon with the best and if cultivated, may just be the next Adele. She will anthropomorphize any object in hand into a family and immediately play imaginary games.

Dogs – don’t even get me started. Oh how she tortured loved our two pugs, Atticus and Eli, as they watched our family add two-legged creatures begrudgingly. Enter a room and Atticus was dressed in pearls and a bike helmet while Eli sported an outfit from any of the American Girl dolls. Oy vey, they tolerated loved her well. And now Gatsby, poor Gatsby… let’s just leave it at that.

Ready, steady, go!
These boots were made for…swimming?

My Little has style and flamboyance that is all her own. She embraces her spirit and wears it well and out loud (apologies to neighbors on all sides, up and down). She is a boisterous life force that can fill a space with her oomph and enthusiasm. She fills my heart!

Today, my Little bubelah (darling), she is grappling with getting bigger, older (like I don’t know from this). She has said several times this past week, “I’m gonna turn six, but after that I’m not doing it anymore. I don’t want to go to college. I just want to stay with my mamas.”

My girls...
My girls…

Join me today in this simcha (joyous occasion) as we celebrate my Little! L’Chaim! (To Life!)

  1. Happy birthday to Little! What an angel. In fact, what a tall angel! 🙂 Birthing experiences are always so fresh in a mother’s mind…and every moment that follows. What a joyous journey 🙂 Hugs to you all! And like a kid, I want to know what presents she got! Mwwah!


    1. Oh Vidya, thanks so much! She is so happy at all the birthday wishes coming in around the globe! So nice for her. And yes, both girls are very tall. I’ll be craning my poor neck soon as they surpass my height! Trees they are! As for presents, she got a ‘make your own terrarium’ kit, a doggie watch, a dress with pugs all over it, and a book called, The Wonderful things you will be, by Emily Winfield Martin. M’wah to you! ❤


  2. ‘After this I’m not going to do it any more’ – I love this. I might say that this year 🙂 Lovely photos. Your daughter sounds fabulous and fun! Alison x #mg


  3. oh happy birthday! Isn’t she gorgeous, I love seeing little ones embracing their unique personalities and any girl who puts those boots on with her winners impresses me! And I love her love for the animals even if they don’t always appreciate it #mg

  5. Six is such a big number! I love her swimmers ‘n’ boots combo. My 3yo sometimes says that she wants to live with us forever even when she’s ‘grown’ and my heart dies a little. Such is motherhood hey?! Thanks for linking to #chucklemums!
