Well, actually it was two days ago, but it has been a long, exhausting week what with the new(ish) young dog in the apartment and such. But, be that as it may, my baby celebrated her twenty-seventh birthday on Thursday.

I made her cards with colorful envelopes and said good-bye to her (for the weekend) as she choose to celebrate her day all weekend with a road trip: Atlanta, GA. Well, she isn't in Atlanta proper, but close enough.

By all accounts she's having a grand time. By happenstance, this is PRIDE weekend in Atlanta. I suggested she go over to Piedmont Park and be my proxy. She mentioned that she might.

Goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway, I love my daughter fiercely and resolutely. Moreover, I like her. I have fun with her in a manner I never enjoyed with my own mother. I am thoroughly enjoying the woman she has grown into and more, as she continues to develop. She makes me proud on so many levels.

Happy, happy, joy, joy to my only daughter.


  1. You were a different parent than your mom. You got a different result. Hope she has a fabulous weekend!

  2. Happy birthday to your baby! It's wonderful that you are so close.

  3. Your daughter sounds amazing. Imagine going to Pride weekend as proxy for ones' mom. Happy Birthday to her, and congratulations to you.

  4. Isn't wonderful when we truly LIKE our children? It's a combination of us, as parents, doing it right, and them, as individuals, being simply awesome.

    Happy Belated Birthday to your amazing baby girl!

  5. Thank you ladies. Daughter had a wonderful weekend (after a less than stellar start). :-)

  6. Very nice, thanks for the information.

  7. Such good news when moms and daughters can like one another. Moreso when living in the same space.

    Glad the weekend went well, even with a rocky start.
