Happy Birthday 'Salina

10 years ago about right now I was being given some heavy drugs after a horrible night of labour going nowhere (don't you wish there was more information on posterior position?) and finally gave birth to a beautiful baby girl.

She yelled for the first few hours!!

After that, the ill-advised sleeping pills I had been handed upon going to the hospital 20 hours earlier took effect and I crashed - to be woken by the wonders of learning to breastfeed (she had to learn also) and newborn nappy changes (NOTHING prepares you for that).

The good news is that MOST of the intervening 10 years have been wonderful.

Happy birthday to my wonderful little girl.

Salina: You've had a birthday! Shout Hooray! I want to sing to you today. One year older and wiser too. Happy Birthday--to you!

Congrats to mom for surviving ten years of motherhood with MUCH more to follow.

Happy Birthday 'Salina. Wow how exciting to be in double figures :)

I remember the thrill of being a double digit age. At 52, the novelty has worn off.

Happy birthday, Salina!
