Happy Birthday Paulita!

Gads. We so need to get together to get some new photos!
Hello! This is 23 years old!!!
Older than her son! Older than my children!
Older than so many things!!!!!!!
We are old.

My little sis Paula is celebrating one of her 4o something birthdays... Don't know if I'm allowed to share her age, but rest assured she is younger than my 46 years, and we are roughly, oh, 3.5 years apart!

She lives near St. Louis, MO.

I miss her.

She is a sweetie pie. She has spent the majority of her life doing things for others, you know the drill - cook, clean, scrub, do your dirty work while you sit on the couch and watch TV. She GIVES to her church, her work, and GOD knows who or what else... (hello! Take a break, will ya?)

She has always has been my little sis and my partner in certain crimes and secrets. I love her dearly. And we so need to make more crimes and secrets together!!! We are WAY over due!!!

Tonight she is having dinner with her only child, so hopefully he will treat her with respect and for once, pay for her dinner and buy her a gift and treat her the same way she has treated him all these years. As in Spoiled!

(Are you reading this Andrew??? Your 17 for crying out loud! Do something for your MOTHER for once, will ya? It's not all about you!)...

OK, my duty as the big sister and God Mother are now complete. That kid needs a huge whack upside his 'what's in it for me' head.

Happy Birthday Little Sis.

And just say 'no'. Or better yet, say 'there's the door, Pal!'.

(I do believe this is the exact same advice she gave me - yesterday????)

Tee he!
Love ya baby.

Happy Birthday to your baby sister!! Your relationship sounds so much like the one between my sister & I...we are 20 months apart. Love her dearly...sometimes we have our "not so good" moments...but we care so much for each other that those little things are just "little things." Such a great tribute to your sister & love you have for her. Thanks for sharing, Andi! Love it!

I have two loving and wonderful not much older brothers, but I have always longed for a sister. Lucky you. Lucky her.

I love your sister! She's the one that introduced me to your blog. I haven't checked in here for a bit, so I am very late in saying Happy Birthday, Paula! You are wonderful!
