How do you know your kids are all grown-up? To wish them a Happy Birthday, you have to call t hem!! Yep…remember when your kids were young so much planning went into their birthday parties. Each birthday was such an event…and you’d wake them up in the morning..hey “birthday girl”..or “birthday boy.” You’d celebrate all day long. Well, now it’s a morning phone call…Just doesn’t have the same impact, does it? And are you like me, every year whether it’s on the phone or in person you re-tell the story of the “delivery day”. I remember, I was a week late with Victoria so on a Saturday January 19th, 1985, I was having her no matter what. Mike and I got up early…stopped at McDonalds-true story-grabbed the newspaper and a couple of magazines. It was like we were checking into El Camino Hospital for a weekend stay. I remember us in the room laughing, reading the paper…and saying …this is easy. Then they broke my water.I ended up having a C-Section at 8:10 at night. My big concern is that I would still be in labor on Sunday and Doctor Weber would miss the Super Bowl…..and you know who was playing? The Niners and the Dolphins..and who won WE DID!!!! 38-16….
I just realized that makes Victoria a good luck charm!!!!! Go Niners…
Can’t have a better good luck charm than that…or can you?
