I love you, Mom! You have always been the most amazing woman in my life and are the most wonderful mother in the world.
March 2008—Mom and I. Thank you for my smile, Mother!
You’ve always been there for me. You were there when Scott was born in June 1998.
And when Parker was born in September 2001.
And though you missed being there when Taylor was born (October 2003), you made up for it in many ways. Like chewing a big wad of bubble gum and blowing bubbles with the boys. March 2007. They thought that was a pretty cool thing for a grandma to do! You were always doing cool, fun things with and for us while I was growing up.
You were there again when Sam joined our family, March 2007.
I love these pictures of you with my babies. I wish there were more. We’ll definitely see you more and take more pictures since we’re moving closer to you soon!!! (Yay for you to get more pictures taken!) ;)
One of the most fun times of my life was the trip to LA with you and Monica in 2006. We were on The Price is Right! You slept on the sidewalk in LA just so I could go and meet Bob Barker. I laid my head on your shoulder and cried when Bob Barker actually spoke to me out of the whole audience! We laughed and had such a good time. We were at The Ellen Show, you danced! Those memories from that trip will forever be with me and I say, let’s go again! ;)
And though we stupidly didn’t take any pictures when you were here just this past February to help me get our house ready to sell. I just want you to know how very thankful I am for all that you did during those two weeks. You certainly did well beyond your share (floors in particular stick out in my mind), especially taking care of the boys for four days while Kevin and I were out of town. (And don’t think I’ve forgotten you’d just done that last October as well!) I THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.
I love you so very much! I so wish I could be just like you! Sigh. I think of you always and everyday and always hope and pray the best for you. Please know how very much I love you!
Happy Mother’s Day!
