Four Generations

There are some disadvantages to being the oldest child: high expectations, responsibility for younger siblings, etc. But mostly there are advantages. (Don't argue with us; you're outnumbered.) And those include being able to meet a great-grandparent. Bro #1 had that privilege; the last "great" of our generation died the year I was born so I didn't get to meet him. And here, Bro #1 is pictured with Dad, Grandpa K., and his firstborn, Supergirl #1.

SG#1 set the bar pretty high for those who followed. She is smart, funny, kind, thoughtful... very super in every way. Today is her birthday. I will be hunting for that adorable baby picture I know is around here somewhere. Meanwhile, Happy Birthday!

Bro #1 here.... There are some advantages to being first-born (not that I had any choice of who came in which order). They go along with the awesome responsibilities and weight of the world on my (our) shoulders - but that's part of the job.

But you are correct that one of the greatest thrills in my life was the moment shown in the photo: 4 generations. SG#1 actually has some faint memories of visiting him in the hospital when she was a bit older. I would have given anything for SG#2 to meet him too.
