My mother dearest is coming tomorrow…I figured I should post that today BEFORE I lose my teeth…since aferwards I’ll be pretty doped up. Mom and I are going to decorate the new place, watch some movies, celebrate Noah’s b-day, drive to Iowa, enjoy soft soup-like foods, and just chill.
I have realized over the last few years how much I love my mom…I love her quirkiness, her different perspectives she brings to problems, her tendency to over-analyze situations, her ability to cook anything, the way she is quick to help people out, even her self-consciousness. This may be because I am slowly becoming more like her (except for the cooking part…I still have to work on that–but I am over the top on over-analyzation!) We still have moments when we drive each other crazy…but what kid and parent relationship doesn’t have those moments…it is in those moments that we remember why God created children to become independent of our parents…to move out of the house and forge ahead. I’m not going to lie…everytime my parents leave after a visit I think twice about why I live 1000 miles away from them. But man those visits are sweet.
Ok all…the teeth are coming out in 1 hour! oye.
