Dear Mom

Dear Mom,

For 32 years I’ve had the privilege of being your daughter.  There 19137_253634693506_512948506_3497332_4125170_nwere times I thought you were the best mom ever, times when you were the worst mom ever (why won’t you buy me a $75 pair of jeans?!?) and times when I took you for granted.  I know that not everyone has a mom who loves them like you love me.  I am truly thankful for you and for your love and support.

You’ve ALWAYS been there when I needed you (except for that time when you and Dad were in PA and Iggymans dropped the live mouse on my bed and you guys refused to come home to get the mouse.  All you did was laugh.  That was not cool.  At least it’s funny now!)  Thank you.  I can’t tell you how much it means to me to know that you’re in my corner cheering me on.

Thank you for already fielding calls about the silliest things.  Thank you for showering your granddaughter with gifts already.  I’m so, so thankful that you’ll be here when she’s born.  Thank you for being willing to help when she first arrives and I’m learning how to be a mom.  Thank you for coming now, while she’s still growing.  Munchkin is blessed to have you as Nana.  I’m looking forwarMom and Id to her getting to know you and loving you as much as I do!

I love so much,
