CJ's 19th birthday

My daughter on her 18th birthday, 4/13/08

 Halloween 1990 (age 6 months)

Time passes so quickly:  Today my youngest baby turned 19 years old!  This is the first birthday I haven't been able to celebrate with her at home, which is bittersweet for mom and dad.  Still, it was fun to chat on the phone today, and she was happy and excited about all the birthday wishes from family and friends.  A bit of good news for the parents:  she made the Dean's list!  She's a cute little stinker, isn't she?


  1. "Here's to strong women. May we know them. May we raise them. May we be them." This is a favorite quote of mine. You fill the bill totally, Leslie. Your girls are very lucky. Congratulations to Claire on making the Dean's list.

  2. Thank you, Rachel. I love that quote, too, ever since I first heard you say it. I am, indeed, a very fortunate woman. I have a great family and wonderful friends!


I love to hear from my readers! Please drop me a line!
