Happy birthday Sarah!
22 years ago today I was in hospital, expecting the imminent arrival of baby number 3. At that time I had no idea that March 17th had any other significance. The first nurse who saw me asked if I was going to call my baby Patrick.
No, I replied, and wondered if Patrick was maybe her favourite name.
Time moved on, and it seemed every nurse was interested in what I was going to call my baby.
"How about Patricia, if it's a girl?"
"Well, maybe just have Patrick as a middle name?"
I wondered for ages why they were obsessing about these names - eventually of course I discovered that it's not *just* Sarah's birthday, but also St Patrick's Day!
I can hardly believe how much my babies have grown! (She's standing on a step, she's not really head and shoulders over her brothers...though the 6" heels do help!)
