Our Callie girl is 11 today. She loves the Katy Perry song "FIrework" and it fits her. There's a stanza in it that reads "You don't have to feel like a waste of space - You're original cannot be replaced - If you only knew what the future holds - After a hurricane comes a rainbow" Then the verse which is belted - "'Cause baby you're a firework - Come on show 'em what you're worth - Make 'em go oh, oh, oh - As you shoot across the sky."
Every time I hear this song I think of Callie and am grateful for the little firecracker she's become. I'll admit we're still often in the hurricane stage with her, but she shows her rainbow side on a regular basis and we were often unsure that would be the case.
