“The Twins”. That’s what everyone called us. But I suppose it’s better than being called Thing One and Thing Two!
It’s our birthday today! I would like to say we aren’t as old as these toys below imply, but that simply wouldn’t be true. My sister is old. She is a Grandma. Times 4!! I happen to be the mom of a 14-year-old and a 10-year-old, so I’m still young. My sister thinks I’m the same age as she is, but the family secretly thinks she’s delusional at times. I’m
almost sure they mean her and not me.
Birthdays were a big deal growing up. The whole family would gather for the occasion. Back then, in Ohio, we always had a donut cake for our birthday. The whole cake was a donut. With frosting. Maybe that’s why everyone came. But at the age of nine we moved to Florida and they never heard of donut cake there. What?!! I thought we should move back immediately, but that didn’t happen. The donut cake was the best thing about birthdays! They were fabulous!! Now, I put on my big girl pants and not whine about it anymore. I will happily settle for Dunkin Donuts. Vanilla Creme filled, please.
Happy Birthday Sis! I thought I would share a blast from our past with you. Check these out!
Hope you enjoyed memory lane.
