Feelin' Old

Well Big Sister turned 26 today!  Exactly how in the hell did that happen???  Seems like only yesterday she was between diaper sizes...one to little, one too big...and peed out the side onto my nicely starched Air Force uniform...twice, in the same day!!!  Or the first time we brought her back to the states...she was about 7 months old and I found out a military flight was going into Charleston, SC and there were "seats" available.  The aircraft was a C-130 which is a troop transport/cargo plane...no seats, webbed netting to sit on...so loud you can't talk to the person next to you...and oh yeah, it was an 11 hour training flight.  The Load Master and the entire crew went out of their way to make us as comfortable as possible since we had such precious cargo with us :-)  As the flight progressed, I was very happy...and proud...of what a well behaved baby I had fathered.  As we descended into Charleston, I was relieved and already thinking about the 8 hour car ride home.  As the wheels touched down...my darling, well behaved daughter projectile vomited infamil all over me...and I do mean all over me!!!  Oh, the joys of parenthood.  Happy Birthday Big Sister....and JM, don't laugh too much...your birthday is coming soon :-)

@Empress...we all went out for Mexican to celebrate and had a very nice time...and as she has much better control of her bodily functions these days, I even sat beside her :-)

Happy Birthday Big Sis. Dad, I know how you feel my baby is 29 and his babies are 8 and 9. I wish I knew where it went. My philosophy is that a parent isn't really a parent until they were the Enfamil spew in public. hahaha. Great story. We just moved from Charleston to Myrtle Beach. Charleston is beautiful but expensive.

@Mynx and Barb...I don't understand how anyone that has raised children can be grossed out by anything...by the time they are grown, you've lived thru the nastiest stuff on earth !

Happy birthday big sis. Being a parent takes you to a whole new world of grossness...puke, poop and all that jazz. For me it goes on and on and now I think everyone smells of poop!! lol (only joking!)
