Big Sister Leslie
From what I was told, Leslie was thrilled when she heard Mom was having another baby. Leslie already had two brothers and was hoping that the next child on the horizon would be a girl. I'm taking it she had had her fill of brothers One and Two: Mark and Miles. According to family, Leslie prayed and prayed for a girl, believing a sister to be the answer to her woes. Well, when I was born, and I wasn't the gender sister Les preferred, you can imagine how upset she was. Upon hearing the news that she had a new baby brother, little Leslie grabbed a stick and hurled it towards the sky, hoping to inflict harm on the creator, the one who dared not grant her wish. By the look of these photos, you'd think she had already overcome any hard feelings.
