1982 WAS A VERY GOOD YEAR!

27 Years ago on March 14th... Lindsey came into my world....You were such a sweet baby....slept through the night from day one....

And you're still a championship sleeper to this day. . . . No honey....morning does NOT arrive at 1:00 PM.
With Curly hair and a silly smile....you brought joy into my life.


Goofy and kind, and fiercely protective of your family...............




when the teen years arrived....so did ALL OF MOMMA'S GREY HAIR!!!!!
I lost a lot of sleep, and most of my sanity.............It's amazing we both survived.

You are so smart....It's hard to get anything past you. And you always know how to make me laugh.


You try to hide your soft smooshie side with that tough girl exterior .... but underneath is a pink princess who loves sparkle and has a heart of pure gold.
And without you this family would not be complete............

Although I've tried and tried to tame that wild side of you.................



I have to admit......I'm dang proud you're my kid! (although I still want to pull those piercings out) .....But do you know what the best part about you is?..... you're my daughter and my friend.

And even though some things NEVER change.............



And some things change a LOT!.................




One thing will always be the same no matter what.....I will always love you with all my heart. And you will always be my little Lindzer Binzer Banzai Buns. And Momma is so very glad that God blessed my life by sending you to me.

Happy Birthday to your beautiful daughter! Nikki with my five...I just about seen everything...I started using Miss Clariol at an early age! lol Mine have tattoos...piercings...I use to swear aliens had taken over my kids bodies...I was grabbing my heart more than Fred Sanford!

But when I see those grown beautiful men and woman run thru my door and call me mama...I nearly choke to death from the lump in my throat from all the love I have for them! Hope Lindsey has a fantastic Birthday!

Happy Birthday Lyndsey! I can tell that your mom loves you very much! You are such a pretty young lady and you were so cute as a baby! I love all of those curls. My daughter turned 26 in January.

Such a pretty girl and a beautiful post. I did not realize we had daughters so close in age. Taylor was born 3/11/82. How about that?

P.S. I must admit to being glad that my daughters weren't born at a time when piercings were popular!

OK, I have a photo of me when I was 9 or 10 -- which would have been in 1982 -- with a dress just like that one in the first picture. I swear they are exactly alike...I will have to find it now.

Anyway, happy birthday to your baby!

Happy birthday to a gorgeous gilr who has a gorgeous Momma. You are BOTH so lucky!!

Love,
Sue, who does NOT look like that in a bikini. In fact, there is a law on the books requiring me to
never appear in anything less that a full suit of armor at a pool. That wouldn't be so bad except for rust.
