The daughter of one of my dearest friends turns 10 years old today. Last year, on her ninth birthday, she wrote this to her mother:

Dearest mama,

Congratulations on your ninth child!

You'll find it strange, but each year it's a new child.

I'm wishing you to have as many children as possible!

This note is so incredible I keep citing it to everyone. Last week, I asked my friend if she remembered it - and she didn't! She said her daughter wrote something as crazy and full of depth regularly, and she kept storing these notes religiously...

Happy Birthday, Yulia!

  1. Holy crap, my poor mommy had 253 kids, no wonder she gets too tired to work more that a few hours at a time in her garden. G.
