Happy Birthday Kate!

My girl is 24 today.
Yesterday she was 7
Last week she was brand new.
8 pounds, 13 ounces,
round and red
with a perfect 
rosebud mouth.

What happened
to all those years?

My best advice -
don’t blink!
Don’t even blink…

My amazing daughter Kathryn is 24 today.  The poem really says it all!  I have no idea where all those years went, but I am so proud of the young woman she has become.  PAD and NaPoWriMo day 14.


  1. Happy Birthday to your sweet girl and I so agree-don't even blink!

  2. Congratulations to Kate and to you. And that must be Otis with her, is it? They're both so cute, but Kate has the best smile (lovely dimples).

    1. Thank you Kay. It is Otis, they are very close!

  3. My daughter turned seven earlier this month. I must not blink...I must not blink...I must not blink.

    Happy birthday to your sweet girl.

  4. I let my 15 year old son drive for the first time last night. holey samolean. time doesn't fly, though, it hides. Happy birth-day, Mother Mary ~
