Double Digits

Ten. One and a Zero. Diez. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and now 10. It went that fast. I will never forget looking up at the monitor in the doctor's office and seeing not one, but two bright heartbeats. And then hearing the news that there would two girls. I wanted you to be just alike. I dressed you up in matching clothes for years and years. I wanted everyone to treat you the same. Silly me.

My sister Janie, our family Beatle maniac, thought it was so cool that I shared the same birthday as her most favorite Beatle. We are just alike.  I have big hair. He used to have big hair. He grew up in England. I grew up in East Texas. He has billions of dollars. I wish I had billions of dollars. We celebrated my birthday this weekend because my boy is away at basketball camp today. The kids picked out my cake and flowers. They wanted to put 47 candles on the cake and were about … [Read more...]
