My daughter Maura turns 2 tomorrow. She is a fireball and a darling all at the same time. She doesn’t seem to know the meaning of upset (unless, of course, her big brother, Malcolm, takes her toys away from her). Happy, happy, happy. That’s my little girl.

Since learning of her mom’s tumor, she has consistenly brought joy into the house with her jovial personality. Sure, it helps that she isn’t really aware of what’s going on, but nonetheless, her squeals of joy and peals of laughter are almost impossible to ignore without a smile on your face.

So, what do little girls like for gifts? I haven’t the foggiest idea. Any suggestions out there, blogoworld?
