Sophia Louise, Age 8

Somehow, and I don’t know quite how it happened, I’ve been a mother for 8 years. The girl who made me a mama is still the greatest ray of sunshine to us. She is brilliant, funny, helpful, sweet and responsible. She is definitely the ringleader amongst her siblings, but they are happy to go along for the ride in whatever imaginary adventures she’s off on. She persistently wants to be a pediatrician, but she’s also mildly obsessed with the weather and being a ‘storm chaser’. We are so thankful for our sunshine girl.

Is there anything else you’d like to tell me about yourself? Of course! Well, I wish I could play with Sieg more often. Yesterday and today, Klaus acted like the Phantom of the Opera and had this big blanket over him and kept swinging it around. And he came over to us and took Sieg! And he also said, “Run away, Sieg! Run away!”
