Happy Birthday Barbara

Barbara is 12 years old today. She is #5 of 11. But she is also totally herself. It seems like just yesterday Sam was trying to push her out. She was a stubborn one during labor. That stubbornness as stuck around. Sometimes in a good way, sometimes in a more trying way, but never in a boring way. She is truly and original. She is a wonderful person and great helper to her mother and me. Always ready to play a game with or entertain the little ones, sometimes to the detriment of her school work. But I’m thinking that creating bonds with her siblings is a little bit more important than worrying about dangling participles or who was the 21st President of the US (Chester Arthur). I’m sure others will disagree with their ‘education is so important’ mantra. And that is fine for their families; we have our own way of doing things.

She is also a goof in the best sense of the word. With her silly faces, great sense of humor and saucy attitude. Hopefully she will channel it for good and not the over throw of the free world.

Babs Happy Birthday, we love you and hope that you have a great day and year ahead.
