It was seven years ago, yesterday. I fell in love with the girl I call Pudding. In those seven years, she has stretched my heart, and it keeps on growing. I’m short on time these days, sorry dear Reader. But I won’t rhapsodize about her any longer. Instead, I’d like to share with you what came home from school yesterday.
Pudding’s school has the most perfect tradition of paying compliments on birthdays. Here is what her class had to say about her. If this doesn’t make you smile, I don’t know what will. These guys are first graders (and teachers) in a classroom made extra special by inclusion. Some written by the kids themselves, others with a little help.
