Happy Birthday Kai
Today I'm taking a detour because it is a most
I want to take this opportunity to wish my beautiful daughter, and fellow blogger
Kai Margaret Jewett Mercado
aka Complicated Kai....or
"All Kinds of Complicated"
HAPPY 23rd BIRTHDAY
As you may, or may not know...we have no hair problems....or should I say lack-of-hair problems....in our family...(no matter what her brother Bryn might say). Kai, however, had more than her share. Honestly, have you ever seen a newborn with this much hair? We even tried to get
funny I mean creative and try a water perm....Through the magic of the camera, and to be honest not because of the perm, her hair was finally at rest, and so was she.
Kai was a style diva from the beginning...and mom, after 2 boys, was anxious to dress her up. I couldn't give up the denim entirely though.
Looking back maybe I over-influenced her style choices at this point...I am all-about-denim...but she wore it so well...right? Help me out....right?
Of course Miss Kai had to be a cheerleader...but balanced it out with her athletic training and stellar high school tennis career.
All grown up and still in love with style! Get a load of the blue velvet shoes with the black graduation gown....tres chic!
Anyway, I'm so proud of my girl....she is smart and beautiful...and, of course, a great "blogess". How's that for a new word. I like to think she gets her wit from her mom. I guess time will tell.
Although today Complicated Kai is 23 years old, I can't help but think it is us moms who should be getting the glory. After all, as all you mothers know, we did all the work, right? So in honor of that night 23 years ago....
