Our Moms and Their Moms and Us

My Mom

– is a blogger, I love that. (Except when she posts ugly pictures of me)
– is a great cook
– is not afraid to send us all home when she thinks the party is over
– reads Nie Nie (and loved this post about being feminine and wearing dresses)
– taught me to have a sense of humor (so I can tease her about putting on her denim jumper after reading Nie Nie’s post)
– loves to read
– doesn’t get to see her own Mom as much as she would want to
– is a fantastic Grandma
– always takes Kyle’s side first (lame)
– continues to be such a support to me with her love and service

Kyle’s Mom
– is also a great cook who has mastered the art of having 10 different dishes ready at once
– has 6 brothers (and then had 4 boys in a row before she had two girls)
– lost her mother this last November (who was like a sister to her)
– got pneumonia at the same time her mother passed away and was not able to attend all the services (it broke all of our hearts)
– serves her family with so much love
– is a big Yankees fan
– is a wonderful grandma (Avery is counting down the days until the next sleepover)
– gives me a night off from cooking every week to go out(which is much appreciated)
– is one of the kindest people I know (and I am not just saying that)

Both of our Moms are great in particular because of their Moms. What great examples we have of Motherhood. We love you all.

Happy Mother’s Day!

    I love my sisters but there is nothing like a mom. So all you had to say is “she lost her mom”–that explains it all. There is nothing like a mother.

    I love your mom. I loved what you said about your mom. Your mom brings me glimpses of my mom and I love that. We all crave a little Debbie sometimes. Even Tobe can’t wait to see Dibi :)

    I hope you had a special mothers day this year. You deserve to celebrate being a mother and all the sacrifices to get to where you are.
    See you in a few days:):):)

    No wonder you are so fantastic…your apple didn’t fall far from their tree. They sound like amazing wonderful women. What a blessing.

    {And your mom had made me laugh many times over the past year and I don’t even know her personally!}

    The second-to-last point for your mom reminds me why she is so smart.

    Same goes for the sixth point for my mom.

    Two great ladies.
