two hours old
Today my oldest daughter turns 12! We will enjoy a quiet family dinner with a homemade ice cream cake this evening. Later I’ll take her on a solo shopping trip for back-to-school clothes. She can’t stand spending full-price on anything and doesn’t like “hoochie mama” outfits so this should be quite an adventure.
A1 has always been happy and she loves to perform in front of crowds of people. There is a long-standing family joke that God put her in the wrong uteris because she looks and acts just like my sister.
The end of this month she enters that dreaded place known as junior high school and hopefully her sense of humor and self-esteem will bring her through it all unscathed and unchanged. She has wonderful friends and loves math. She likes to look at boys, but thinks that they’re rather silly as a whole. Her favorite color is purple and she sings along to anything on the radio. She’s knitted in the past, but doesn’t really like it as past time (told you, wrong uteris).
Happy Birthday sweetie, we love you lots!
