The other woman in my life

Ok, granted a very young woman, but as of today - one year closer to the real deal.

Roseanna is a sweet girl with a huge beautiful heart who never gives us any problems, worries or reasons to see her teachers during conferences. And after her two older brothers, she also is, let's just say, a refreshing contrast - and leave it at that.

So Happy 12th Birthday sweetheart! Your mom and I are extremely proud of you and we love you to pieces.

Happy Birthday Roseanna!!!

She's just 12? You ain't seen nothin' yet, my friend. :-)

Jeff said...

mooselet - LOL! Believe it or not I thought about you the whole time I was writing this. I thought, "oh Mooselet's going to bust my chops on this one." Don't worry though, your daughter is living vicariously through my oldest just fine. ;-)

Happy Birthday Roseanna! May you have many happy returns, and lots of presents. :)

Drowsey Monkey said...

Ahhhh....

Happy Birthday Roseanna!

Umm ... I was sweet at 12 too, just saying. The teen years should make for some interesting posts ;)

Michelle said...

Awww, so cute! I already know Little Miss won't give me that satisfaction. So are you a parent who goes to conferences even though there's nothing "bad" to report? My husband and I have a disagreement on this need -- him from the teacher perspective and me from uhh my perspective!

Heather said...

Happy Birthday to your sweet girl! She's beautiful. She must look like mom.

Happy birthday!

Grandma said...

What a darling picture of you, Roseanna. You get more beautiful all the time. Sure makes me lonesome to see you!! Remember when you were little, and I would carry you upstairs to bed, and then read to you? Sure couldn't do that now, could I? Happy Birthday, sweetheart, and I'll see you next week---I can hardly wait!!! Love Grandma

Memarie Lane said...

For a minute there I was worried you were going to be announcing her first period.

VE said...

How DO you love somebody to pieces? It sounds messy.

Happy Birthday Roseanna...let me give you one word to make the old man cringe: shopping

roseanna-
Happy birthday to my favorite! (neice!) You look more grown up than the last time I saw you! I was the first girl in our family, and you are our last! You made it better! Hope you have a wonderful birthday. Love ya! Aunt Cindy and Uncle Don.

Mom Thumb said...

Don't sweat it, my little girl never gave me any problems, even during the teen years.

I think Roseanna looks like Lois. Anyway, Happy Birthday - only 4 years until you can drive, yay!

Bill said...

P.S. Grandma just asked me what LOL means, and I said "Lots Of Love". She laughed and said it means "Laughed out Loud"!! Now you know what I really meant to say!!

Happy birthday!!

Jeff said...

michelle - I don't believe a parent of a "good" student should take up the teacher's time during conferences when there are so many parents who need to discuss actual problems. I hate it when I have to wait in line for a parent that is basking in the wonderfulness of their child, when my kid is getting a D in something.

memarie lane - Ya, no need to worry, we won't be writing about that.

mom thumb - Bite your tongue!

Happy Birthday Roseanna!

This is like the second or third blog I've read this morning where it's someone's birthday. Today is also my husband's birthday. So then I got to thinking, "What is up with all these June 4 birthdays?" And then I realized there's not much else to do in winter...

Jillian said...

Roseanna and I share a birthday? A fellow Gemini. See, I knew I liked you. Glad I added you.

By the way, the ass bling is only for the ass whisperer...

Whit said...

Happy Birthday! Stay in school and listen to your father.

Elizabeth said...

What a cutie! Happy Birthday Roseanna!
:o) Elizabeth

Jennine said...

Roseanna! You are gorgeous! Happy Birthday kiddo!

Michelle said...

Jeff, surely a child of yours would never get a D in anything! But you guys have to wait in line for conferences? You don't just set a 15 minute timeslot and meet? That has to be frustrating -- and sad for the "unpopular" teachers!

Kathy said...

Happy Birthday, Roseanna! Such a pretty name for such a pretty girl! Enjoy your day.

Jeff said...

michelle - For some dumb reason, our high schools have a system where you get in line. Sometimes it takes 1/2 hour to 45 minutes to see the more popular (or unpopular) teachers. It's really frustrating. And stupid. That's why I hate it when people who don't need to be there take up the time.

cathouse teri said...

deborah said...

Dan said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

I am sending a big family pack of marmite as a present.

Durblady said...

Happy Birthday, Roseanna! Morgan was thrilled to run into you at Home Depot - but very sad to learn you were now taller than her! :) Enjoy your day - and try to give your folks a little trouble - they might need a refresher course!

Karen MEG said...

Oh, she's a beauty Jeff. You may have to unlock those shotguns soon!

happy belated birthday to your sweetheart!

Maureen said...

Aw, happy belated birthday!!!

Just wait, Jeff. My daughter just turned 17... and I know from whence (yes, I said "whence") I speak.

Windyridge said...

Ah Jeff wait till she starts dating...

Happy birthday!!
