Happy Birthday, DD


Twenty-three years ago today I gave birth to my second daughter. A beautiful bald baby girl. She's not the sweet cuddly kind, but is, instead, prickly and grumpy and has an attitude, but she's got the most beautiful skin and a pretty smile, as well as the thickest, most gorgeous hair you can imagine. Aside from the attitude, she and I are a lot alike and are generally very compatible. She's my reader and my crafty girl.

Anyway, I've bought & wrapped presents and baked birthday cake. This evening, before we go out to eat at the restaurant of her choice, she'll open her presents. I can't imagine she won't like them as she made a list and didn't deviate much from it. I'm not sure where the singing Happy Birthday and eating cake is going to come in...I guess after dinner. Although, I'm all for eating dessert first.

Here are the pressies. There are a few for the Brown Eyed Girl (the pinkishly wrapped ones in the bottom right corner). Her birthday was the 2nd of March. I'd stashed them and couldn't find them and then came across them when stashing DD's gifties.


Care to share your birthday traditions?

Happy Birthday to daughter! And congratulations to mom! Raising a child is no small feat and those early 20-something birthdays have a bittersweet feel. Memories of childhood intertwining with the present reality that your little ones have turned into adults.

Belated congrats to you -- as Regina said, getting a child to adulthood is no small accomplishment. Hope all of you had a super evening. And might I add that polka dot paper is way cool?
