14 years ago today, April 11, 2000, my Sinobia was born! She did not come into this world quietly. There was lots of screaming, crying, huffing, puffing and pushing as she entered into our lives. Her reputation for drama and fanfare has stayed true throughout these 14 years. Every day, since the moment my water broke has been an adventure with Sinobia. Life is never dull with her around.
As our iPhones turned to midnight today, Sinobia's phone began buzzing and ringing. She was flooded with birthday messages from her friends. I realized that the same crazy, weird, hilarious moods she brings to our house, she also brings to all of those around her. She is "SO Sinobia" all of the time. In her 14 years she has learned to love herself for who she is and embrace all that she has to offer to others. She stays constant and true to herself all of the time, never changing or compromising her values and self-worth for others. She is a gift to all that have the pleasure of knowing her and a treasure to those who have her as a friend, sister, cousin, niece, granddaughter and daughter.
Happy Birthday Sinobia! We love you!
