My "baby girl" is 36...............tomorrow............


Today it is very windy here in Newcastle, in fact the wind is so strong that a tree came down across Warners Bay Road.

We had a Sunday lunch at my parents place as tomorrow is my sister Sandra's birthday and because of that I will write today about Sandra.

Sandra is my "baby girl" no she is not my daughter but she is still my "baby girl", she was born around 10pm at night and weighed 6lb.  I remember the night she was born I was staying at my nan's house while mum was in hosptial and I remember dad coming and telling us that mum had a baby girl.  

Back there you didn't know what you were having till after bubs was born.

When Sandra was little I would take her and my brother David around with me when I would walk around to the corner shop. Mum had this big old pram and I would put both of them in the pram and push them around to the shop with me. I remember taking Sandra to school when she was little to show her off to my friends. 

I have found memories of Sandy coming in and getting into bed with me during the night or early in the morning. Some nights she would go into get into bed with mum and dad but David would already be in bed with them so she would come in and get into bed with me.

Sandra is now 36, I find it amazing that my baby girl is 36 now, she is married to Ed and has two beautiful daughters Temika & Denni, she now feels like her family is complete and has no desire to have any more children.

I agree, happy birthday to Sandra! Sorry, on facebook, I thought you were referring to your daughter! What happy memories you have of when Sandra and your brother were little. What a lovely big sis you must have been! Enjoyed looking at the photos as well today.

It's nice you wrote this about your baby sister Sandra. I often wondered what having a sister would have been like but I'll never know. Sounds like you were a good big sister! Happy Birthday to Sandra.
