First and foremost...You are Forever your Siblings Boss.
It is written...somewhere...that as the First Born, you are 'The Boss'.
My Siblings know and understand this Decree of Birth Order!
I would have been a very good Only Child, but
One Year, Two months and Six days after My Birth,I got a Brother!
Right from the get go, I didn't much like him.
Because of him, MY milk source changed.
Because of him, I became a 'Bottle Snatcher'.
Because of him, I got a Potty Chair and Big Girl Panty's.
Because of him, I did not have MY Mama's undivided attention...
...until I learned to say 'Potty and Poop'.
Because of him I became a 'Sister' on March 6, 1948.
There was plenty of room in the Buggy for us both, but I'm sure I did not
Share The Bear.
Our mode of Transportation from 1947 through the early 1950's was varied.
After the buggy...
.....I did, however reluctantly, share OUR 1940's Radio Flyer Red Wagon.
In the 1940's, the Radio Flyer company was asked to switch production from toy wagons to helping the war effort.
Which they did with the creation of 'Blitz Cans' in support of the Allies.
Why is it that parents feel compelled to take pictures of their children wearing nothin' but their 'Big Girl Pantys'.
I'm pretty sure my Mama was not taking a picture of the 1940 Pontiac and I just got in the way.
This photo has been a source of embarssment to me my whole life,
and I can't believe that some 60 years later,
I'm showing it to the Whole World Wide Web in support of the 1940 US Census Community Project.
I have joined the Project as an Indexer and Ambassador in honor of my Dad

You, too, can support the 1940 US Census Community Project by volunteering as a 1940 US Census Indexer.
On April 2, 2012, NARA will provide access to the images of the 1940 United States Federal Census for the first time. Unlike previous census years, images of the 1940 Census will be made available as free digital images. Upon it's release, the 1940 Census Community Project, a joint initiative between Archives.com, Family Search, findmypast.com and other leading genealogy organizations, will coordinate efforts to provide quick access to these digital images and immediately start indexing these records to make them searchable online with free and open access.
