Happy Birthday, Princess

Eleven years ago today, the doctor assisted me in delivering you...what? what do you mean HE delivered you. I was right there. He WAS trying to push me out of the way, but Mimi has very sharp elbows and I was holding my own.

If that old bull moose nurse had not interfered, we'd had it made.

I had a camera.

Maybe someday, when you are 50 or so, your mother will let you watch. Mimi TOOK HIM DOWN. Not so much the bull moose nurse.

SHE whisked you away. I just wanted to touch your little hand. Spoilsport.

For the past eleven years, it has been my delight...my joy...to be with you.

Your mom is the icing on my cake. You are my sparkly candle. I love you. Mimster.

Happy Birthday Princess.

Someday when I become a grandmother I'll most likely have the same story to tell. In the meantime I'm gonna work on my elbowing moves.

Happy eleven years of being a fabulous Mimi.

"you got a LITTLE CLOSE with the camera..." Ha ha ha. I did the same thing when taping for someone else. I had NO idea and they realized it long after the hospital stay. Oops! :-)
