Today my poor, forgotten middle child is celebrating a milestone birthday which is a very big deal…except for the fact she has managed to get served in the past. I can’t believe no one has ever questioned that fake ID of hers. Then again, no one ever questioned mine back in the day. But as I do with every birthday celebration of each and every one of my darling circus clowns, I get all sentimental and nostalgic searching through old pictures and files of when they were my babies because…OMG, my babies have grown up much, much too fast!!! But this time I am enjoying more the sisters and brother sharing old pictures and memories and perhaps revealing secrets that I imagine my darling Abigael Rose wishes were not revealed.
I watched you come into this world and proceed to make life your bitch.
Her sister’s right; and all the while she managed to look like a sweet, little angel who couldn’t possibly be making life her bitch.
That, my friends takes skillz, real skillz.
And having sisters always by your side sharing good times and bad times…
and adventures…so many adventures…with bad hair and costumes.
Don’t forget your brother who is always your friend.
21 years ago today the world became an even more awesome place because this young lady was born. Lucky world! That, my darling forgotten middle child is why you can never, ever be forgotten.
Happy birthday my wonderful Abigael Rose! I promise not to tell anyone that you still sleep with Baby and sometimes suck your thumb.
