Today was Lemmie's 9th birthday - I honestly cant believe the last 9 years have gone by so quickly!
Lem has grown up into the most amazing child. We do have our personality clashes, lol, a lot of them as she is very strong willed but I know that is part of her becoming a confident take-no-shit young lady lol. She borders on the stubborn but it doesnt get her that far with me lol.
She has an awesome sense of humour, and a smile that can light up a room. She comes up with the funniest things, and then laughs her head off for ages and her laugh is so infectious.
She has born the brunt of the trauma over the last year, and before. She used to try defend me when J was attacking me and would often be pushed out the way by him, only to come back and stand in front of me to try fend him off when I couldnt. She is the peace maker. Always trying to keep the peace when I am arguing with P or with her dad.
She struggled at school just after the divorce last year but quickly overcame it to become a little star. She really tries her best and gets very upset when her marks arent what she hopes for.
I am honestly so blessed to have her - she is my little champion. The last couple of weeks a switch has been flipped - she really has come out of her shell and she is an absolute joy to be around :)
All she wanted for her birthday was a J Board - so my dad and I got her one together and my word she impressed me on it!!! She is a total natural!!!!
Happy birthday my sweetheart, hope to share many many more with you!
