Summertime: The Bucket List

Reelin' in the Years

Singing this one today . . . 

 

Dear Erin:

Nanny has told me that nothing makes you feel older . . . than your children growing older.  And (as always) she is right.

Today, as you turn 26, I'm feeling pretty old.  (Because how happen???)  But I'm also . . . reelin' in the years.

 Right from the start, you did your own thing!

Always curious.  Always enthusiastic.

You've had an incredible sense of who you were and what you wanted to do!

(Which didn't mean you took the easy route.)  

(Like ever.)  

(I still miss your music in the house, by the way.)

It's been wonderful to watch you . . . unfold.

Right before my eyes.

Can't wait to see what happens next.

Happy birthday, Erin!  You're making me feel pretty old today.  But that's a really wonderful thing!  I'll always be here . . . stowin' away the time!

Love,
Mom

Happy Birthday Erin! This was my Nana's birthday too. Happy 26th anniversary of becoming a mom Kym!

Happy Birthday, Erin! 26 is still younger than you think and that means your mom is pretty young, too!

Carole

I know what you mean as my baby will be 23 in just a few months. Yikes! Happy Birthday to Erin, thanks for the time capsule of her important moments.

Vicki

Happy Birthday, Erin!!

Bonny

Happy Birthday, Erin! I'm honored to share my birthday with such a wonderful young woman who knows how to think for herself. (And you are far, far from old, Kym!)

Jo

Having such a beautiful and talented daughter certainly helps mitigate the "pain" of getting older! It was fun to see all the pictures of her iat different ages.

Jo

Oops! I forgot to say Happy Birthday!

Mary

Happy Birthday, Erin! best wishes for many wonderful adventures! (and Kym, you can't feel old with 26 - I'm going to be 29 on my next birthday!)
