Any big plans this weekend? I’m getting ready to celebrate this cutie-patootie …
Look at her, with her little fishing pole. Funny thing is, now that I’m nearly two decades older than she was when this photo was taken, she’s still pretty darn cute–though I doubt she would admit such. Just like she would never admit to being one of the best moms ever; perhaps that’s one of the things that makes her so.
That and she makes me laugh. Very few people can make me laugh like my mom. Whereas some may wonder what their parents were like when they were younger, I feel as if I know. It’s almost as if, when I look at this photo, I can imagine myself there.
I am one of the lucky ones. Sigh.
But my mum is not the only one I’ll be celebrating this weekend. My aunt Sonja–and her best friend–are coming over to celebrate her 60th.
Good times are bound to be ahead.
With that, there are floors to scrub, cupcakes to bake, and presents to wrap. I best get to it.
So to all you mothers, a very happy Mother’s Day … and extra love to those who will be missing mothers or children …
