16 years ago today, this little boy made me a big sister. All the big sister classes in the world could not prepare me for the little one that my mom would quickly name “The Grand Finale!” I couldn’t stand him stealing my shine but as we grew older, I realized our shine helped each other grow. This little jiggaboo became my baby doll as an infant and quickly as a toddler, he became my bodyguard. I’ll never forget the day he tried to fight my 5th grade boyfriend for breaking up with me…he was in kindergarten. I can’t believe he’s 16 today. I’m holding back tears thinking about it. I love you little booger wolf, you old nappy headed Shabby Ranks! Happy birthday! I love you!
