Richard Armitage isn’t the only Leo-Virgo Cusper in Obscuraville…

Ten years ago today,  I was confined to a bed with a pitocin drip in an attempt to jump start labor.  Dramatic from the womb, Mini Me was born at 9:21 PM on August 24, 2005…5 weeks ahead of schedule.

That *was* a Hello Kitty cake...

That *was* a Hello Kitty cake…

My little cusper has all of the fiery flair of a Leo, yet it is often tempered the by earthy practicality of a Virgo.  She constantly fills up whatever space she is in by either demanding attention outright, or with singing and dancing that is impossible to ignore…

She has been a diva since birth, but she is also incredibly kind and compassionate.  When she was six, she ran a stand for Toys for Tots at our church festival to collect money for toy donations.  Last year she worked as a peer mediator for her fourth grade class.  Yesterday, when we asked her where she wanted to go for her birthday dinner, she picked a local favorite Mexican restaurant rather than her favorite steakhouse because she wanted to make sure that her ShowBiz brother could find something to eat.

She is my greatest challenge and a source of never ending delight.


For all that you are and all that you will be I wish you the happiest of birthdays my very own Mini Me!!

(we LOVE pink!!)

      I can see her in a tiara sitting in a convertible Corvette doing her parade wave now…we’ve had several conversations about her future prom dresses too. Egads…she is a challenge to my hardcore Virgo side. 🙂

  4. Happy Birthday to mini obscura! She is a beautiful little girl! Blessings!

    I hope Mini-Me had a great birthday. The month of August rules! I think that my mom was due on the 24th or 26th not sure, well I had other plans. I am a shy Leo, well maybe not all the time. You have a great daughter with a big heart, what a sweet girl to think of her brother when going out to eat for her birthday.

    Daughters are something very precious – and extra special. No offense to all the sons, but a daughter is somehow closer, I think. In any case, I hope MiniMe had a nice day. Congrats to you for surviving 10 years 😉 They will have prepared you for the challenge of the next six 😉
