'Twas an early start Monday morning, to have birthday gifts opened in the presence of all siblings, breakfast eaten and those big girls out the door by 6:30 to make it back to school. We shared cake Sunday night,
a rather lacklustre affair, I just hadn't given cake a thought until about four o'clock when the troops declared cake must be on the menu while all were at home to share.
I do love how it doesn't matter whose birthday it is, it's open slather on sharing the joy.
Sal entered the world at about 2:30 in the morning, August 25, 2004. We often joke it probably won't be the last time this one will have us awake at that time of day.
She is the most fiercely loyal of all our children. Loves the hardest and doesn't hold a grudge for very long. Her temperament frequently reminds me of the tale of "the little girl with the little curl in the middle of her forehead" ...
"... when she was good, she was very, very good;
but when she was bad ..... she was horrid".
Fortunately this ten year old is more times good than bad. We love you baby girl.
