My Babi turned 85!
It's hard to describe and accurately depict my grandma, because you just have to know her.
She is so self-less, hard working, giving and hysterical.
She was a huge huge giant part of my life growing up and still is.
She basically lived with us, took care of us, did all our laundry, picked us up from school and chauffeured us everywhere.
I don't remember her ever not being there really.
Even when we moved all the way to South Carolina, she would spend months at a time there with us.
When I was 5, she wouldn't let me watch tv or something so I tried to fire her.
Literally said, "my daddy's going to FIRE you!"
We still laugh hysterically about that.
Whenever I'm away from home, my first meal request is her Czech food.
She's very humble and rarely thinks it's "edible".
It's so 'un-edible' that the amount she makes for a few days of lunches is gone before the first days dinner.
We broke the news that we'd be adopting Ryan to her over skype.
Wish we had a picture of that.
She said we (my parents) were absolutely crazy but
then showed up at the house with two giant bags full of baby stuff.
She's been saying she should be "pushing daises" since I was about 10.
It's now a family joke but she has promised to not "push daises" till after I get back.
See, what'd I tell ya, so self-less.
Happy Birthday Babi!
I love you so much.
