I am fast becoming one of those people who always wants to flip open their (empty) wallet and uncoil a zillion pictures of my kids for you to look at (whether you want to or not).  So, please forgive me, but today is my daughter Grace's 5th birthday.  She's redheaded and there is good evidence that she is crazy.  (Go ahead and say it...the apple doesn't fall far from the tree)

Truth is my daughter Grace is awesome.  She is unbelievably happy (despite the fact that I keep trying to depress her by reading the headlines from Drudge to her) and booming with personality.  It's great to be a 5-year-old and I hope she has the best birthday ever.
