The best birthday present

For my third birthday my parents gave me a most unusual birthday present. A brand new baby sister. Now how many kids can say that? She was better than a pretend doll or a new trike.

Often I have heard the comment that it must have been unfair to have to share my birthday with a sibling. Nope. Not at all. It just makes for bigger parties! Also, with two of us on the same day it was impossible to forget. While growing up the rule was that we got to have a party with friends on the even number years. We still celebrate every year, although the family has grown enough that this year will be just cake and ice cream next weekend at her house.
Thanks Paula for being such a great sister and I hope that you have a Happy 26th Birthday!

My little sister Delores was born on my 10th birthday, best present ever! Many happy returns of the day, Sharyn/KalamaQuilts

My true age doesn't bother me nearly as much as my daughters getting older. I was 18 when Athena was born. When she turned 21 I told her that she had to stop. That makes me forever 39, Athena 21 and Eris 18. Everyone's happy.

Sister Paula will always be 26 because that is the way my girls think of her. She is celebrating her 51st today.

Thanks for the birthday wishes!

Yay for Aunt Paula! Happy Birthday, Mrs. Indiana Jones! And to the Numismatist - enjoy Grandma Wednesday and your DP and Milky Way. Sounds like the perfect day.
