My baby sister

I love this prompt since today is my baby sister birthday and her name is Jenny. I remember the day she was born on July 12, 1972 at 7:30 am. I’m the oldest of six children and I was twelve.  I don’t remember the weight or all those things that people asked when a baby is born.  The only thing I did care was if the baby was a boy or a girl.  When I saw her then first time she was the cutest baby in the nursery.

I remember the type of diapers my mother use to put on her they were white cloth diapers tight with pins. My mom will leave them at night in a bucket of bleach and the next day she will wash and hang them outside. I was my mom’s little helper, she was my little baby doll.

When my mom passed away, she was only 14. At that age, she needed my mom the most.  My dad did a wonderful job raising the last three youngest especially Jenny. She got married and has three wonderful children.  She’s my precious baby sister.  For the last three years she decided to move close to me.  I’m happy that she did and to have not just Jenny but my dad and my two brothers. I love my baby sister and to her I wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!


Daily Post: If you could pick one person to be commemorated on a day dedicated to him/her alone, who would you choose?
