Yo Moma

What a week! Ian has had baseball which is coming to end soon. So its back and forth to games and practice. I have missed reading and catching up on blogs this week. I apologize but I promise I will get to you. Which brings me to wishing all the mother's out there a wonderful mother's day on Sunday. Whether its a mom to a child, a wonderful aunt, great cousin, beautiful sister or mommy to even fur babies. I hope you have a day filled with love and hugs.

I love my mom. She and I fight like Italians then we kiss and make up. Well, we make up. In our family, we get all puffed up like blow fish, give each other the finger, say a few eff words, tell you to go the hockey sticks called hell and then have a cookout the following weekend. Once we got into a fight and about three days later here comes my step dad with dryer sheets as a peace offering. True Story. Pinky Swear. We drive each other crazy to the point of I want to take heavy medication such as Advil, but I love her. She would give you the shirt off her back and she loves all of her grand babies. She has helped me in many ways especially when I needed food on my table or clothes for my child. 

She had three children. How she did it I have no idea because I would already be in the crazy place. She did her best with what she was given and although we fight and I want to hit her upside the head with a wet squirrel, I love her and couldn't imagine my mom being anyone else. She lost her husband and my step dad and Pa Pa, Tom in January and the strength that she has is amazing. I know there are times when she cries alone. I know there are times of loneliness and I know that somewhere she finds comfort that his battle with the disgusting cancer was fought hard and ended with peace. I think about her often and wonder if she's ok at night but now its her time to see what it is like to be her own self. But I have also reminded her that although I love her super bunches, I will put her in a home called Shady Pines if she turns into an old crotchety woman. I mean who wants to go to the Palace? But we got a long time to argue about that stuff.

She's a beautiful woman. So talented and has so many gifts that I want to learn from her. I love her so much and Mom, have a Happy Mother's Day. For without you I wouldn't have a Mother's Day.

Have a great weekend,
Dusty

  20. Haha! Your relationship with your mom sounds a little bit like my relationship with my mom :) And I know how you feel about the number of kids thing... I don't think I can have any more than two... and my mom had five. Maybe that's the reason we have crazy mamas!
