Rather startling to think your little baby sister is 50! Seems like only yesterday she was a wee little thing with Shirley Temple curls and the longest eyelashes in the www (whole wide world!) What a cutie-pie!
When she was a couple months old, I found the perfect poem to describe my adorable baby sister in a kid’s magazine (that I’ve forgotten the name of) and I’ve remembered it (the poem, not the magazine!) ever since:
and a little pink nose.
The Shirley Temple curls are gone, replaced by thick, gorgeous, waist-length tresses, but the eyelashes are as long as ever. Stunning!
Happy Birthday kiddo! This one’s for you . . .
and this one . . .
Okay, I’ll stop there. I could go on, but I won’t.
Just one more?
Well . . . . okay.
But just one, got it?
Happy Half Century Squirt!
