My girls make being a mom the absolute best adventure I’ve ever experienced!
With Thing 1 in Charleston, Thanksgiving 1999
Sweet kisses from Thing 2, Christmas Eve 2002
Thing 2 posted this on my fb and it literally made me laugh out loud! It’s so very Thing 2!
Even though she tagged her sister in it, I’m not sure she saw it. I’d love to read her answers too.
Mother’s Day is coming up! ADULT daughters…

Wine, wine, cran-apple juice, and wine.

Tiffany blue, bitch!

NATS! NATS! NATS! WOOO!

Probably not very delicious.

Wine? Mimosa? Cosmo?
20. You’re in jail and you call her, what’s her response?
$20 on the table, it’s “Jesus Christ, Magdeline.”
(This made me cackle! That $20 is hers. She’s so right! I didn’t know that’s what I’d say until I read it. Of course I’d ask if she was OK very first…but that is absolutely my “annoyed with her” phrase.)
Mother’s Day is tricky for me. I no longer have a mom…I’m not near my own children…but I loved being a daughter and I absolutely love being a mother.
I wouldn’t trade being the mom of my girls for anything in the world!
They helped me become the woman I am.
