30 Years in 30 Days--1978

I was born October 14, 1978 in Buffalo, NY. Jimmy Carter was the president and Sony introduced the first walkman. To this day, my mother tells stories of how my uncles, who were 16 and 18 at the time, were waiting for my father and her to come home with me, smoking cigars in their living room. I did not ride home in a car seat, but on my mother’s lap. On their way home, they heard Stevie Wonder singing “Isn’t She Lovely”. This has always been my song (and my father and I danced to it at my wedding). My mother says I began speaking in full sentences when I was 10 months old. Judging by the way my own children speak, I believe her.

What a sweet story about "your song". Talking full sentences at 10 months? Amazing!

Baby! No car seat! Being brought home to a house full of cigar smoke!

I lived through similar (and worse) things, so I am not pointing fingers. But my, hasn't the world CHANGED?
