  1. I’ve only “met” her on this site, but I’m wishing her all of the best on her birthday and beyond…Happy 15th!

  2. Fifteen. That’s only, what, six months until a learner’s permit? The milestone every parent dreads. Good luck to the both of you, and brace yourself now!

    And it looks like she’s looking down at the camera; is your kid taller than you?

  3. @Adam Lenhardt
    Ever see a photographer change position in order to get a good shot? Maybe even crouch down a bit to get an angle in which the subject seems to be looking down at the camera? Really weird of you to assume she is taller than her father…. and/or taller than the photographer. And why do you assume her father was the photographer to begin with? Odd comment.
    Beautiful photo BTW.

  4. Happy birthday!! You know, this is the fifteenth year running you have shared a birthday with my sister, which shows great good judgement on your part! May the coming year contain all good things.

  5. Better answer:
    “Adam Lenhardt, I had to literally put her on a pedestal in order to obtain this lovely photograph.”
    Ok. Shutting up now. Apologies.

  6. Thanks for satisfying my utterly pointless curiosity. You three seem like a lovely family.

    And, alliemda, one need never apologize for being snarky, when snarkiness is all that’s intended.

  7. Wow, happy birthday Athena! And gefeliciteerd met z’n allen, as it is traditional in the Netherlands to congratulate not only the birthday critter but her nearest and dearest as well.

  8. Merry Christmas, belated Happy Birthday to Athena. Mine is day after tomorrow, the 27th. My folks always made the effort to make my birthday stand out in the Christmas rush, which can’t be easy for folks with other things to worry about.

    And a happy solstice, which is what we tell ourselves we’re celebrating! We’ll be doing Tequila on New Year’s Eve, a tradicion of neighbors up Sand LIck.

  9. Happy Belated Birthday, Athena! Also to my mother, whose birthday is the same as Athena’s (different year ;-).
