This post is not about my own Mother's Day, but rather about my mother. (Although I did have a lovely Mother's Day.) I was lucky enough to have my mom in town for three days last week and it was great. I haven't seen her since Christmas, so it was fun to watch her discover all the things that Topher can do now. We had so much fun going out to stores, to the park, to eat, to the library...wherever our fancies took us. Even bull riding.
And it goes without saying that Topher LOVES his Mar-Mar. Actually he must have gotten a little confused at some point because he simply calls her "Marble." That works too. So every time he'd wake up he would say, "Where's Marble?" and then I would have to hear an endless repetition of, "Marble be back soon?"
My mom is great in a crowd. She can make herself stand out and be heard no matter how many people are gathered. However, I have to say that this is the way I love her best, just one-on-one, all to myself (and my son, I don't mind sharing her with him). It was a great week. We hated to see her go.
Thank you for everything mom, and most of all for just making so much time for us. Thank you for making Topher laugh so hard. Thank you for filling up our gas tank (if that's not pure love in this economy, I don't know what is!) Thank you for letting Sassy slobber all over you, Squash sit all over you, and Sheila slither all over you. We all love you so much. Happy belated Mother's Day! You are the BEST.
