I wonder if she’s going to hate it like her older sister, or accept it like her older brother? I didn’t start writing until Princess was already grown and out on her own, and frankly, my writing about him, is all Sweetness has ever known. I guess we’ll be answering the question in hindsight 20 some odd years from now, but for now, it’s her day. Happy Birthday Duchess…..
Just in case you walked in late, Duchess is the successful result of what’s known as a Frozen Embryo Implant (IVF). She and her brother were taken from the same ovary at the same time. He was immediately transferred to me (Fresh Embryo Implant), she was put back for Cryopreservation. Six years, and several budget amendments later, we wanted to try again, but Science hadn’t progressed as quickly as my desires. We were told she would only have a 15% success rate of surviving…..sigh. Two embryo’s implanted, both took, one split. I miscarried her twins….but she….she survived….
She is my blogging bread and butter. She’s BSC, shows no fear, has a great deal of patience for revenge, and truthfully, there isn’t much feminine about her because she has an older brother who beats the crud out of her daily. Gathering the Guardian toys for the week, she happily said, “For me? Thank you Mommy”. Yep, The Duchess is a tomboy and I’m okay with that because it’s cheaper. Just give her a Nerf Gun, a Batman toy and Princess shoes (for the noise, not the style) and she’s happy. She’s just like me and I’m so proud of her. Happy Birthday Duchess. We love you so much. Gotta go. She just yelled from the back, “Yook at what I did”….that’s not good. Be Blessed. Remember you set the Tone, You ARE the Example. BE KIND to each other.
