who says 2 is terrible

“Having a two year old is like having a blender without a lid”
Jerry Seinfeld


(Somebody is going to wake up to a yard sign of celebration)

They say two is terrible…but turning one during a pandemic, which meant
no party or family gathering, might have been worse.

Yet what matters most today, is that you are here…
happy and healthy and all ready for turning number two…

And that first missing party is, well, all yours this year.
Plus it’s something you don’t have to share with “sister”—
because it is all yours–your day, your birthday.
but allowing her a piece of cake might be nice.

From those scary first day’s in a neonatal unit ’til today—you have been our
joy and indeed our hope. And if the truth be told, I think ‘sister’
wouldn’t have life any other way than sharing it with her “Je”

So Happy Birthday to our little man—
and get ready—your party is coming Saturday!!!!

And remember…never put all your eggs in one basket…

Do not conform to the pattern of this world,
but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good,
pleasing and perfect will.

Romans 12:2

    Don’t tell any of my grand-daughters but little boys are my faves..Of course God gave me 4 of them.

    • First, I fixed the title’s typo— and I also know about the boy thing- Gregory was so afraid that when I was in delivery 1000 years ago before knowing gender was a thing, he was afraid that if they had told me it was a girl, I’d have told them to take it back 😂

    My parents experienced my 2nd year as this. The second month I contracted a virus resulting in 105 temp and convulsions. Doctor said the medicine couldn’t help. After a prayer from dad and a miracle life giving touch from God, I went home after 5 days in the hospital. That was an experience they are grateful to God.

    What a lovely tribute to the Sheriff! And Just one more thing to add to the things “in common” list. Our little Jellybean turned 2 too – (Oh, Two-dles!) Her one year old celebration was also less than it should have been, but this year’s party was hosted on the same Saturday as the Sheriff’s! How funny is all of that???? PS- So glad things have worked out so nicely for him…I remember all the prayers being said over the rough road he had in the beginning. God. Is. Good.
