Tess’s 5th Birthday Letter {From Daddy}

Tess’s 5th Birthday Letter {From Daddy}


5 years old is a pretty big deal!!! You are growing up so fast and it is awesome to see, but I wish time would slow down so I could enjoy all the phases even more. This year is the year you have stepped into BIG KID STATUS.

I loved watching you on the plane to California with your headphones on acting like you were a pro at flying.  You have handle yourself so well this year. You have been able to handle big kid things. Staying up for a “midnight” snack. Helping out around the house, even taking care of your favorite person, Spear. 

I am so lucky to be your Dad. You bring so much joy to our family. You are the glue that keeps the sibling bond strong. Kye and Britt always have someone to turn to when they are not getting along. 

You are also such a great student in school. You never ever get in trouble and represent our family. I know you may not see the value in that now, but it is a big deal and I am so proud of you. 

You have such a good heart for others, and want to see others be happy. That is something that will make you a great friend and spouse. 

You also are unapologetically you. You do not parse words. If someone asks you if you want to do something, and you don’t, you just say “nah”. If someone asks your opinion, you always give it straight up. You never sugar coat it. You are bluntly honest. I am pretty sure you get that from your Mom! Ahaha. That is one of the things that I love about her and I love it about you too!

Happy Birthday my sweet baby girl. 5 years old will turn in 15 way to fast. I am not looking forward to you growing up and having to deal with some of the realities that life throws at you.  But for now I will cherish every moment I have with my sweet Tessie. I love you so much.
