This is my niece, and today is her Birthday. Allie is hysterically funny when we talk. She’s tall and beautiful with blond hair and she is very smart. Now, don’t get me wrong, she’s your typical snotty teen at times as well, but some of that also comes from the fact that she is quite strong willed. I like that because it will serve her well as an adult. She’ll know how to go after what she wants. Now if only she would get over her obsession with boys!
One of the nice things about spending time with her is that I can be totally relaxed with her. I can be stupid, or silly or serious. I don’t have to worry about teaching her the “correct” way to behave because that’s not my job! We’re very different, but you can certainly tell we’re from the same genetic pool when we talk. We just mesh well.
I love my Allie. Happy Birthday!
