It starts with an S- and ends with an -ecret.

Do you have someone in your life who is the worst secret keeper in the history of secret keepers?

We do…her name starts with an L and ends with an indsay.


Several {TEN} years ago Linds and I shopped for her sisters upcoming 8th birthday. 
We chose a pogo stick as her big gift. 

(I was still trying to find a way to burn some of her excess energy!)

The day before Lo’s birthday her little sister {the worst secret keeper in the history of secret keepers} said to her:

“You are going to LOVE the gift we got you!”

Lo, being the older/wiser sister said: 
“Give me a hint!”

And this is where the little sister gets to keep her title as the worst secret keeper in the history of secret keepers.
Lindsay’s reply:

“it starts with a ‘P’ and ends with an OGO!”

Four seconds later she realized what she had done. 

10 years later and we will never let her live it down. 


All above photos are of Lindsay on her 5th birthday. She told me last week while reading the blog that most of my posts were about her sister…and she would like more of HER. Second child syndrome???


Happy Monday!

  1. poor L + indsay. I always thought you favored Lo. This is ridiculous. I wish you would love them both the same. ; )That is a funny story. This is an adorable post!

  2. ha, I am laughing – mine seems to lend itself more towards the second child because she like the camera better! I always wonder how that makes Lauren feel and try to even it out from time to time…as far as secrets go…I think mine both do pretty good with them but I was HORRIBLE!

  4. I'm just back from a week at the beach and while I was away, I was thinking, \”Ya know, Suz should write more about Lindsay\”. Shame on you!But really, you should write more about me. The hell with Lindsay. She had you for 15 years already. I didn't even get one year with you yet!m.p.s. did you miss me?

  8. That beautiful smile would melt my heart every day. I'll bet it's hard to say \”no\” to her!If she is the worst, I was the 2nd worst secret-keeper. You can tell her from me that it's really just a sign that she has a pure & honest heart. =)…and I learned better how to keep them, later in life, when it was really important (especially when keeping confidences for others).

  11. You know what she is? It starts with B and ends with Eautiful!My brother has a similar story that we like to bring up often. My dad took him shopping once when he was about 4 or 5, and he bought my mom a microwave. Now, it was WAY back in the day, when no one had microwaves, so it was kind of a big deal. When they got back from shopping, he told my mom that they bought her a present. \”Really, what is it?\” \”I can't tell you. But, it's NOT a box with buttons that you put food in!\”bwahahahaha!! It still cracks me up!
