Happy Birthday to Me

41 years ago today, my mother braved the cold of Minot, North Dakota to give birth to moi–not that the cold made that big of a difference, but I’ve heard it was -30 that day. My dad spent his entire paycheck buying me onesies. My bassinet was their top dresser drawer. We were a poor family, but happy, so I’ve been told. Based on the photos, I’d say it’s true.
