To you and you and even you

Happy Mother’s Day! The thing I love about Mother’s Day is that it really is (or should be) for everyone. Everyone had a mother. Everyone knows an awesome mother (or two or twelve). Today I celebrate the great moms in my life as well as the kids who made me a mom, and that is just plain cool.

As I said to Chickadee this morning—after I put sunscreen on her back and then she began to cover my back—“You are so helpful. How did I ever manage before you came along?”

And she replied, “You didn’t. There was nothing before me, clearly.”


I’ve had a lovely breakfast, sparkly trinkets, and even a dip in the pool. We’ve talked to all of the grandmothers on the phone. I’ve gotten hugs and kisses from warm, chlorinated children and that awesome guy I married. Today, I am full.

I wish all of this for you, too.

    I said to my husband, “I hate it when Mir says what I wanted to say, but does it so much better.” (I may have stamped my foot, also.)

    He read your post, and announced, “She cheats.”

    Happy Mother’s Day to one of the best Mama’s I know.

    Darn it!
