Happy Birthday Rob

In honor of our baby boy's 38th birthday, here's one of my favorite quotes from him.

We had been visiting my parents when Rob was 9 or 10 and as usual he was teasing his younger sisters and brother. After watching this for awhile my mother said to him, "Rob, why do you torment your sisters so much". To which he replied, "Its my job".

Happy birthday Rob. I can't believe I've been doing this mothering 'job' for 38 years. It's kids like you who made it easy for me.

This picture was taken around the time of his "Its my job" quote. Being the oldest of this bunch of kids, I imagine it was hard not to tease the younger siblings.

And then a few years later, yet another victim was added to his gang. In spite of the teasing, Rob has always been a good big brother to his siblings.

Happy birthday Sonny-bub.
