Birthday Girl

Today’s the first day of teendom for my littlest girl. She still talks to me, and that’s encouraging, but usually only about horses, or how much she loves horses, or how I should get her a horse.

Tonight we were eating TCBY, and I commented how tall something was. “It’s about 13 hands” was her reply. Horse crazy.

However, no horse this year, and she’s OK with it (though secretly resentful, in the way I still am that I didn’t get either an airplane or a motorcycle for my 13th birthday).

Happy Birthday, sweetheart

Happy Birthday, honey, from all of us. You are loved more than you can know.

It’s also the birthday of one of my Aunts, so Happy Birthday Aunt Sue!

  1. Yes, you are.
    From the Far West Texas branch of the Roberts family!

  2. Take the kid and dog to a dog agility and she’ll forget about horses, and it is MUCH MUCH cheaper, even if you end up buying a dog that is more suited for agility.

    We’re talking $80 for a class, no stable fees, and the food is cheaper

    I’ve been doing the dog thing for years, and still haven’t missed horses though I was horse crazy as a kid (but didn’t have a dog or do dog sports until I was an adult).

  3. It’s great to have a Birthday Buddy!
    She’s as cute today as then – just in a ‘grander’ size!

  4. Good memories in that photo! I thought of our eating together last year to celebrate BOTH birthdays of your daughter and Aunt Susie! Hope your gal had a great day!
