Happy happy birthday, Pajama Bottoms Girl, and may there be many more happies yet to come. Your life is off to a most wonderful start. In the end, it’s all about the memories 🙂

The lyrics to “Sunrise, Sunset” are now floating around my brain….
You have gorgeous kids, Bossy! I wish you a bazillion more years to enjoy them, too.
Eloise saysJuly 18, 2009 at 12:25 pm
Happy Birthday, Bossy’s sweet daughter!
I right there with you on that “where does the time go” porch…
Bush Babe of Granite Glen saysJuly 18, 2009 at 12:26 pm
What a great-looking pair… Bossy must be bustin’ with pride as she uploads this photo. Happy Birthday Bossy’s Daughter… and how TALL is your nearly-20 son?? Yowza!!

Happy Birthdays, Bossy’s Daughter & Bossy’s Son. Condolences to Bossy for the too swift passing of the years.
APeetsMom saysJuly 18, 2009 at 1:34 pm
Ahhhhh! That was sweet stuff! Makes me all mushy about my own kidlets. Time does go by too fast….though it looks to me like you have spent your time wisely – good job Bossy!
Melissa saysJuly 18, 2009 at 1:34 pm

Happy Birthday, D.! Welcome to the teen years.

Happy Birthday to both your “babies”. Your daughter is only 3 1/2 months younger than mine.
Jennifer saysJuly 18, 2009 at 3:21 pm
You are blessed, Bossy. There’s a lot of love in your life.
The happiest of birthdays to both of your kiddos.
Kathy from NJ saysJuly 18, 2009 at 3:58 pm
I love the way Bossy’s children coordinated their outfits with Bossy’s house.
Happy Birthday to all.

Happy Birthday Bossy’s Beautiful Daughter!
Don’t go getting all sullen teenager on your Mom, now.
tina saysJuly 19, 2009 at 6:57 am
RIght with you on the passage of time thing, bossy… how would you like to have a granddaughter who is turing 6 on wed. july 22 ? I love it.. but hay, she was just born yesterday or so it seems…………………………
(also singing sunrise sunset.)
Debby saysJuly 19, 2009 at 9:45 am
HELLO, totally teary-eyed this morning, thanks a lot. Mine are 10.5 (almost, Aug 5 to be exact) and 11.75 (officially yesterday) and I am wide-eyed and slack-jawed watching them, trying desperately not to blink so they are still here for a little while. Waaaaaa
Happy Birthday Bossy’s Daughter!!
Audubon Ron saysJuly 19, 2009 at 10:30 am
Hold on before we get all verklempt about years and their passing. Kids sprout fast and mature at ultra sonic speed from first day in high school to second year in college. You on the other hand have WAY so, so much more time and deeds to do and beauty to preserve. Oops, sorry Mr. Bossy, I just may have flirted with your wife there just a little.
Dara saysJuly 19, 2009 at 4:40 pm
Yep, time keeps on passing…but you, Bossy haven’t aged a bit!! How do you do it?? Is it the wine?
Happy Birthday, Sunny-One!
Cactus Petunia saysJuly 19, 2009 at 4:50 pm
Happy, happy birthday, Bossy’s daughter!
clickmom saysJuly 19, 2009 at 5:53 pm
Happy birthday both of Bossy’s kids. Now would you pass the kleenex please?
Well Read Hostess saysJuly 19, 2009 at 10:20 pm
What is it with la famiglia Bossy and the kick ass footwear?!!
WRH covets BOSSY’s Daughter’s sparkly shoes!
Cindy Z saysJuly 20, 2009 at 12:44 am
Happy Birthday to Bossy’s daughter and son!! My oldest turns 21 at the end of the month, I just don’t know how that happened!
Ungirdled saysJuly 20, 2009 at 10:31 am
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Bossy’s daughter!! What a sweet, touching post! I just love your blog. We called when our twin boys turned thirteen, “turning turdteen,” because they went from sweet to turds, but luckily, this does not seem to be the case for Bossy’s daughter. Our boys (now 16) sometimes give us a glimpse of their sunny sides again.
Biddy saysJuly 20, 2009 at 11:47 am
why was i thinking The Great Getzby was younger? Here I was, thinking he was barely old enough for me to marry. Turns out, he’s practically an old man! I think we should have the wedding next week. 😉
oh, and, again, happy birthday Bossy’s Adorable Daughter!
Carroll saysJuly 20, 2009 at 11:55 am
The thing about Bossy’s family photos (to which I keep returning for my heart-cockle-warming fixes) is that they don’t just capture the faces, they capture the love! It’s palpable, Bossy, and there’s no way to fool with that in Photoshop. Poverty Parties aside, you be one lucky family 🙂
reen saysJuly 20, 2009 at 12:08 pm
Happy birthday, BD! Loved reading the past tributes, you’ve got me welling up over here! Your family is just awesome.
mrs. G. saysJuly 20, 2009 at 12:28 pm
Ahh, they are both beautiful…just like their mom and dad. Enjoy this double teen moment, because when your son turns twenty, girl, that means you are old! xxooxx
Made saysJuly 20, 2009 at 1:34 pm
A) Happy Freakin’ Birthday, Baby Bossy!
B) A strapping gent and a lovely lady…Congrats to you, Miss Bossy.
Reeb saysJuly 20, 2009 at 4:30 pm
Sweet. And fun to revisit the loving mom’s tributes to her kids.
LisaJane saysJuly 20, 2009 at 5:24 pm
Oh man, I am so there..where did the time go? 🙂 Happy Birthday to your kids!
Shayera saysJuly 20, 2009 at 7:03 pm
Aw! Happy birthday to Miss D.! I hope it was a wonderful day.
Domestic Goddess (in training) saysJuly 20, 2009 at 8:55 pm
In a rare moment of seriousness, my baby turns 1 in a few weeks. I can see that I will be writing the “my baby is a teenager” post way sooner than I am ready. He started walking yesterday… he’ll be driving tomorrow. God help us all!!!
MariaV saysJuly 21, 2009 at 6:13 am
Happy birthday, Bossy’s Daughter!
Mo saysJuly 21, 2009 at 7:27 am
I love their matching he/she belts. And then the eye moves to the opposite but yet similar groovadelic shoes…great composition
pkzcass saysJuly 21, 2009 at 10:21 am
I was so busy failing at celebrating my son’s 13th birthday on the 18th that I forgot Daughter of Bossy was turning 13 also. I hope she had a better birthday than my son, who had to make his own cake. I was too busy crying at the loss of my baby to puberty.
Anna saysJuly 24, 2009 at 2:42 pm
Aaaaah. My baby is now 6 months old, and already I’m dewy-eyed with nostalgia and wondering where the time went…
