happy day after your birthday Shannon!

*the oldest*

the child i have known the longest

the child i was to practice my first mothering skills upon
the first person to call me mom

the first to lose teeth

the first child i had to leave at kindergarten

the first one to play an instrument
(and played it very well i might add)

the first one to drive a car
(shouldn't those permit packs come with a perscription for valium and a bottle of wine for the parents?


the first to...
                                                                               
 go on a date

 go out with girlfriends
go to the movies

&

the mall

the first to get grounded

the first to have big hair & jeans with  holes (on purpose!)
the first to proudly do the highschool graduation walk

the first 

to get a job

 go to college

 get married

the first child to leave home

while there have been many other "first" with this, the oldest child

these are the first that stand out the most on this day

~*~
happy 34th birthday shannon

All I can say is I love you mom. Thanks for making me laugh and cry at the same time. Valium should definitely be given to parents when kids get their permits. Thanks for everything !
