Happy Mother’s Day!

Toady is Mother’s Day.  I know it’s generally a Hallmark holiday, but it’s always nice to have a reminder that not only am I actually a mom, but I learned everything I know about being a mom from one of the best.  My mom is an amazing woman.  All through my childhood, she was there for everything, she knew all my teachers and friends, she kept up on every sport I participated in and was always by my side to cheer me up.  I can only hope to be half the mother she is; not only is she my mom, she’s my friend.

She was diagnosed with breast cancer six years ago.  Luckily, a routine mammogram caught it very early.  She had an outpatient procedure to remove the lump and went through a round of radiation.  Today, she’s healthy and we’re so lucky to still have her here with us.  I’m so glad that Junior gets to grow up with a close relationship with his grandma.

To celebrate Mother’s Day today, we met my parents at a local greasy spoon for breakfast and ate way too much.  After we came home, Junior and I passed out from food coma while Hubs and our friend did yard work.  Then, I went and did my own Mother’s Day shopping.  Hubs knew I wanted a new purse, so he sent me out to shop ALONE (gasp!) to pick it out.  He (the man who doesn’t cook) actually cooked me dinner too.  Maybe it wasn’t a glamorous Mother’s Day, but it was great.

To all my mommy friends out there, I hope you truly enjoyed your Mother’s Day.  To everybody, if you haven’t already, give your mom a hug (or at least a phone call) and tell her you love her!
