Hey Everybody, It’s Kid2’s Birthday Today!

Let’s all celebrate by…

…living our lives in sweat pants. Every day.
…watching John & Kate Plus 8 each and every time it’s on.
…being the “snuggle” child.
…practicing ballet moves while you’re talking to someone, or standing in line at the store, or sitting in a chair.
…setting the TV/VCR on “timer” and falling asleep to it.
…wanting to practice driving before you got your permit.
…bugging your parents for an iPhone. Offering to pay for the phone and presenting a business plan for the increase in monthly payments must be part of that process.
…making really close friendships rather than having a social network.
…loving all sorts of animals.

Happy 15th Birthday, Shelby.

You also share a birthday with Hakeem “The Dream” Olajuwan, Wolfman Jack, Jack Nicklaus, Benny Hill, Placido Domingo, Stonewall Jackson and the awesome Geena Davis!

Now, to find that newspaper we saved from the day you were born…
