Eight years ago this morning, SOBUMD and I went back to the baby-well one last time. We had no idea that day that our daughter would grow up to be royalty – although I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised.
This day, the 21st of August, hasn’t changed as much as it will. Number One Son was born on the Summer Solstice. The Human Tape Recorder was born on Halloween; SOBUMD on Memorial Day, and I on St. Patrick’s Day. We researched for days trying to find a holiday – anywhere – celebrated on August 21.
Now we know better. It just wasn’t known as a holiday then. Today will become a holiday, since it’s the birthday of the Reigning Queen of Pink, Grand Duchess of Fluff, Lord High Protector of Barbies, and Baroness of the Hummingbirds.
So to her and everyone else: Happy Reigning Queen of Pink Day!
