10 years ago you made me a momma for the first time.
10 years ago I looked into your sweet face and fell in love.
10 years have passed so quickly, I can’t seem to find the pause button.
I love watching you grow into a sweet, caring, and loving young lady. Your love for God and desire to read the bible is so inspiring. You are funny and make us laugh a lot. You are such a great big sister to Mya. You are trustworthy and honest, both wonderful characteristics to have. I sure love being your momma!
Mom: How does it feel to be 10?
Ally: Hmmm, it feels exciting!
Mom: Anything else?
Mom: What is your favorite color?
Ally: Hmmm, my favorite color? I like teal. And yellow. And pink. And green.
Mom: What is your favorite food?
Ally: Cheese (laughing and giggling)
Mom: What do you want to be when you grow up?
Ally: A veteranarian.
Ally: Because I get to work with animals. Especially dogs. I love dogs.
Mom: What do you like to do for fun?
Ally: Listen to music and hang out with my friends.
(Mom wonders if she is 10 or 16!?!)
Mom: What is your favorite subject?
Ally: I don’t know, I like English Language Arts and Math, but I think I like ELA a little bit more.
Mom: Anything else you want to tell me about yourself?
Ally: Nothing that I want people to see publicly!
(Mom sees a good chat in our future!)
Ally returns: I do have something else to say, actually. I love dancing and I love basketball! I like listening to music, checking my email, and playing games on the computer.
