A New Twist to Labor Day

For most people, Labor Day brings to mind a family picnic or perhaps working in the yard or an end of summer boating trip and the start of Fall.


For me, I took the word “Labor” in Labor Day literally.  Two of my three babies were born ON Labor Day!


The first time it happened I thought, “Oh how cute…a baby born on Labor Day”.  The second time when my water broke in the middle of the night and it occurred to me it was “Labor” Day again….I thought, “this is ridiculous!”  Emily was ten days late and Jamie was about that many days early.


We normally celebrate their birthdays together even though their special days are actually two days apart.

Happy Birthday Dear Sweet Girls!

I feel so fortunate to have Three Dear Daughters.  We have a lot of fun together.  This next weekend we are having a mother/daughter trip to hang out just before Jamie gets married.  We are going to ~~~~

Enjoy Labor Day in whatever way YOU choose to spend it!

That is too cool about the girls being born on Labor Day Donna. I guess you certainly qualify for a celebration with your girls in Chicago. Have a great time with them and do some junkin for me. I know you'll find lots of great stuff at all our haunts.

Happy birthday to your beautiful daughters!
Enjoy your mother/daughter trip to Chicago, I'm sure you'll have lots of fun.
My mom and two sisters and I have taken a couple of mother/daughter trips over the years (once NYC and once Las Vegas). Lots of great memories.
