Today's picture is of my grandmother, Nana, and the three Childs great-granddaughters. These are, from your left, Joy, Jill and Brook. Brook was born on Nana's birthday, which made her a favorite. I believe this is, I believe, Nana's 95th birthday. We started celebrating every 5th year with a special celebration when she hit 90, then every year, I think, from 95 to 100.
Nana lived to be 101, dying just a few days before her actual birthdate.
I used to tease her, when I was young, that I was her favorite grandchild. She said - at that time - that she couldn't afford to have favorites. With 8 children, numerous grandchildren and uncounted amounts of great-grandchildren running around, even at my young age, if she had a favorite, the others would be upset.
However, when Brook was born, Nana HAD her favorite and no one objected. Not that she treated her differently, monetarily, but she just had a little bit more twinkle in her eye when Brook was around.
