My Sweet Mollie –
I realize you have been nice for over a month and I am just now getting to your birthday letter! Perhaps you should have been born at a time when Aunt Jackie isn’t so busy. Just kidding of course. I’ve been writing this letter in my head for weeks, so that has to count for something.
As you are getting older, we are spending less time together, especially since COVID and Hannah became a ‘thing’. But that doesn’t mean I don’t see you being you. Who are you? Well, my long-legged beauty – you are wonderful.
First of all, you and Mikey are thick as thieves. Any time we get together it is the two of you scheming and you being in charge. You are a traditional older kid, like me and you OWN it. And in the world we are living in, I have high hopes for you my girl.
You are also sweet as can be to Hannah. I know she likes running with the big kids and you are more than happy to make her your living doll baby.
Mollie, you are so smart, sweet, and resilient. I love you, and welcome to the exciting age of nine!
Aunt Jackie xoxo
