Happy Birthday....yesterday!


I want to give a "day after her birthday" shout out to my wonderful mom! Her birthday was yesterday and I wish we could have been in Tennessee to celebrate it with her! I'll try not to get too sentimental since my mom won't be the only one reading this, but I am SO THANKFUL for her. I love the stage of life that we're in right now--I guess it will be this way forever now--that my mom has become one of my best friends instead of just my mom. We were always really close and I always felt like I could talk to her about ANYTHING. I hope to be that same kind of mother for my kids...I think having a mom that I could confide in kept me out of a lot of trouble! Now that I'm married and have a child, I understand so much more why my mom worried about me, why I had rules growing up, why she waited up for me every night until I got home, and why she still worries! The last week has been really hard having a sick baby (and husband and now myself). All I've wanted is for my mom to come take care of me and everyone else! My mom has always inspired me to be the best I can be in whatever I choose to do and to always be nice! When I was little, I remember her telling me that even if I didn't like someone, I still had to be nice. My mom is probably one of the most genuinely nice people I know. Anyway, Happy Late Birthday Mom! We love you!

Mom is probably glad you didn't post a picture of her backside. I guess I need to do my own shout out now!

It's funny there is sort of an unwritten rule that you are supposed to do a 100 things about me list on your birthday...you should tell your mom to get working!!! A good one to check is my friend Julie's you can go to her blog from mine. I am already a little stressed about doing mine!!! Happy Birthday Diane!
