For Reba

When you turned five you could...

Read like 3rd grader
Tie your shoes
Play softball
Work the iPhone
Memorize your parent's phone numbers
Recite your address
Count to 20 in Spanish
Count to 100+ in English
Ride a bike with training wheels
Dress yourself
Take care of your dolls
Draw fabulous pictures
Get your own water from the refrigerator
Buckle your own seat belt
Make anybody laugh
Melt my heart with a smile

*note the Cabbage Patch Doll Reba is carrying - a gift from the Queen. Apparently this is the 25th anniversary of the Cabbage Patch - which only means that I was exactly her age when I got my first Cabbage Patch Doll - one of the originals. I smelled this one - they still smell the same. I forgot to check the butt for the signature... I always thought that was weird.

I remember my first Cabbage Patch Doll. Her name was Angela and she was one of the first "burping" had to squeeze her belly for her to make the noise. Apparently my mom searched everywhere for her that Christmas! Happy Birthday to everyone! Hope all is well.
