My Fierce One Turns 11


My beautiful daughter's birthday was today. For the event, those of us who could cook created a fine meal with tacos, guacamole, and other great accompaniments. Instead of cake, we had cupcakes decorated in various custom designs by the eleven year old of the hour and those who came together to honor her. BTW, if I ever want to get a giggle out of folk who know her, I refer to my youngest as "my quiet and demure daughter." For my mind, I think she gets her keen and fierce personality from the one who shares the same birthday (and who influenced her old man growing up). Had he lived, Bruce Lee would have turned 70 today. To celebrate them both, there's only one theme song that fits.

  1. Happy birthday to your Fierce One! Eleven was a magical age for me. I hope her 11th year is twice as good as mine.

  9. Holy monkeys! 11! I can't even imagine that age! Niiiiiiice song. We should do a meme for celebrity birthdays and/or songs/scores that describe us or our kids.

    Happy birthday to your little female Bruce.
