Tomorrow is Sadie’s 7th Birthday, which means that today is November 15, 1903. When I asked her what she wanted for her birthday she just kept on telling me that she wanted her mother to come home. Genevieve will never come home, but Sadie thinks she ran off so she didn’t have to take care of her. I didn’t tell her this, but she assumed it and I wasn’t going to tell her the truth. Her mother isn’t a gift I can give but I have decided to give her this journal, so she can write in it just like her mother used to. After I write this I will remove this page and the other that I wrote so Sadie doesn’t find out about her mother’s death. I’ve also decided to get her a Teddy Bear, just like the one in the picture. These teddy bears are a new thing that all kids are wanting. I guess they were named after Teddy Roosevelt when he went on a hunting trip and found an old black bear injured and tied to a tree. This bear was then portrayed as Teddy in political cartoons and shown as a cub. These Cartoons inspired the Teddy Bear that was named after Teddy Roosevelt. On another note, Sadie is becoming such a beautiful young lady and she reminds me of Genevieve every day. She is so lively, cheerful and definitely friendly. Everyone in town loves her, because she is always skipping down the streets while singing silly songs. Sadie has also requested to go to school like a normal kid and I’ve decided to allow this. Genevieve always wanted her to stay home where she was safe, but I say it’s time for her to spread her wings and gain a little freedom. The cost of this school will be very high, however I would do anything for my little girl, so if she wants to go to school then I will enroll her in school.
