Happy Birthday...............Baby Girl...............aka..............Sandy Mae


Good morning world yeah I know I say morning when it may not be morning where you are but it is here and what a morning it is nice and cool and wet, Tim had to take Jessica's car to work due to the wet weather and the fact that I need my car to go to the doctors. Nothing wrong with me just need a form filled in for the RMS (roads & maritime service).

Anyway today is a special day in the family it is my sister Sandra's birthday she is 37 today, bloody hell.

I can remember the night she was born, I was staying at my grandparents house while mum was in hospital and I was in bed already when dad turned up on his way home from the hospital to tell nan & pop and me about the baby. I remember hearing dad's voice so I got out of bed and walked out to the loungeroom where he was and tells me I have a new baby sister, Sandra Mae.

I also remember going back to bed and feeling super excited, I was nearly 15 at the time.

I think somehow I knew this new baby would be like my own baby, I loved taking care of her and helping mum with her. As she grew into a toddler and mum had David to tend to I would look after Sandy more. She would come into my bed at night and cuddle up to me this she did for a long time and I have to say I liked it.

When she was only a tiny baby though I would take her into my room in her bounce and while I listened to music and I listened to loud music.

I remembered taking her with me when I walked around to the shops for mum, in fact I took both Sandy and Dave as mum had this big old pram and I would put both of them into it and walk around to the shops.

Our sister Jeannie was so excited about a baby sister that she took Sandy to school for show & tell, Jeannie was around 9 at the time.

For as long as I can remember Sandy was my baby girl, I often as a teenager like to think of her as my baby, she was the first baby I had fall off my bed.............lol, thankfully she wasn't hurt and I just picked her up and settled her down, I didn't want to tell mum she had rolled off the bed............

So baby girl happy birthday from you big sister, ok you have 3 big sisters but the one who is a mummy/sister.........love you sis

  2. Dagan is fifteen years older than his half-brother. Quite a gap. I can see why you feel like a mother/sister. :)

  3. Dearest Jo-Anne,
    That is enough difference for feeling like it was your own baby. My youngest sister is only 9 years younger and at that age it is not quite the same.
    Sending you hugs and wishing her happy birthday!

    1. First thanks for birthday wishes, secondly the RMS is like your DMV except they deal not only with cars but boats and such does that help
