My dear Maggie Rose turned six on Easter Sunday. Yeesh, I can’t believe I have a six year old child. Maggie is glorious. She’s constantly making new friends, which isn’t surprising since her first sentence was, “Hi, I’m Maggie.” She is clever, bright, funny, and a great manipulator (as all big sisters should be, riiiight Aunt Katy??). Maggie is constantly creating, building, sewing, making…anything she can draw or make is her favorite. She lights up my life and I’m so in love with this sweet girl…even when she’s sassy, which is about every five seconds if we’re not getting out of the house and being social every. single. day.
So, here’s a birthday interview I did with Miss Margaret. I particularly enjoyed her knock-knock joke.

Taking care of my doll, Jessie; being a good sister with Lily; and taking care of people when they’re sick.

Not that strong, but you could hold Banjo and me and Everett.
Tell me about the best day in your life.

Tomatoes and carrots and broccoli and strawberries

Brush my teeth, get my doll Jessie, go play some more, and go eat some breakfast

Being nice to your friend. Playing with her when she asks you to and listening to your friend when they say so.
Tell me a knock knock joke.
Three cows, who?
Three cows, “Oh, it’s steak!!”
If we were to get anything you want, what would you ask for?
My own decorations for me if I wanted. Like poofy poof balls and glow up rubberbands…and I would decorate the whole house with hearts.
And really, who could ask for more? Happy birthday, Maggie Rose!!
