40 Years Ago Today...

I was told I couldn't do this, that is... make a big deal about BEING 40, but he doesn't read my blog...heck I don't even think he knows I have one! goes~~40 years ago today my life as an "Only Child" ended!
(I searched and searched my computer for a baby picture and couldn't find one, I'm too OLD and tired to go searching through the closet for one.)

Embarrassing photo first.....(evil laugh)!

This is a very rare photo of me wearing a skirt...consider yourself lucky to see it!

I was raised to love everything "boy" then it was assumed that when my brother came along I had to be a girl...ewwh! I love my brother very much, we always got along very well...and still do. I was there to protect him when we were growing up (yes, I did punch out a few people for picking on him) and he's been there for me during my rough times (there's been quite a few).
I've always wished I had his brain...he's quick witted and level headed~~me? I have to think about it before I come up with a funny and I'm NOT level headed...but I'm learning. I've made rash decisions in my life that's gotten me into trouble.

He's been a great roll model for my boys...they've seen what a REAL man is like. My kids were basically raised in a single parent household (their father IS, by his choice, absent). He's the father of my FAVORITE only niece, Maggie. And he's a GREAT one at that! He taught me the love for sports. Growing up he was my best friend!

So, now for the part I was threatened told not to do....
Geez, Jay~~YOU'RE OLD! You're FORTY years, that's halfway to 80! Ooooh!
(A little background info see, he constantly reminds me of the fact I'm OLDER than him every year, my payback has arrived...sorta. Saturday is his B-day party and we've been told NOT to do anything concerning his's a little different once you reach "That Age")

Yes, you are still #1 in my book!!

Happy Birthday Baby Brother!!

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!

Baby Update~~No baby yet, they are looking at Tuesday of next, we'll be heading to Richmond late this weekend! I'll keep you posted. Thanks for all the positive thoughts and prayers sent her way, her blood pressure has gone down and the baby is showing no signs of stress....good news!

Happy (in advance) Birthday!! Jeez he's old! :)
I don't think being 40 hit me as much as when my baby sister turned 40! Great news on Mom and baby doing so well!

Yay blogger will finally let me post a comment!!!! Happy Birthday to your brother! My brother teases me about getting older too (he's about 18mths younger than me) but when I try and tease him about hitting a milestone like 40, he just smiles and says "yeah but you're older".... #@&^$@!!!!!!! Brothers. Can't live with 'em, but can't live without 'em either. :o)

What a wonderful birthday blog! You must show it to him, Robin, so that he can read what you wrote (and then hug you and punch you in the arm for it). ;)

Sending warm thoughts & wishes for your SD & baby!
