Thinking of Mothers...
I have been incredibly blessed to have a wonderful mother, that has been clear to me for many years, but especially hits home on my first Mother's Day as a mother myself! No mom is perfect (thank God - we would all hate her), but I like to think that mine raised my two sisters and me pretty well since we're all functioning adults most days!
She's also a fantastic grandma to Baby Knives and her cousins, they love her like crazy and the only complaint is that she and their grandpa live too far away (Oklahoma).
As a kid, I remember thinking on more than one occasion how I would raise my own children differently. These thoughts usually took place after I had been grounded for a week for doing something generally unthinkable and consisted of ridiculous ideas such as: When I have kids, I'll let them eat all the cookies they want! or When I have kids, I'll let them hit their little sister back when she bites them!
Mom definitely had her hands full with us over the years - Happy Mother's Day Mom!
