My Mom is so beautiful. I used to say my mom was so much prettier then Barbie and that is a big deal if you feel like that when you're 8 and all you think about is playing with Barbie! :)
Below, I love old pictures of my mom with me. She looked so proud to be a new mommy!
Below, Mommy and Dave... this picture is so cute!
Below, I LOVE LAUGHING PICTURES!
She is such a strong Mom. She put up with me during my teenage years when I was angry with her and was extremely disrespectful and needed a smack in the mouth A LOT! She has always tried to be our friend, sometimes I think that can be a bad thing and that she should have disciplined me more but I know that it was because she loved us so much and wanted us to love her, accept her, and be close to her always. The older I get the more I get to know about her, the more I understand her, the more I love her, the more I respect her, and the more she becomes one of my very best friends. She has three girls and one boy and the love she has for all of us is overwhelming at times (a good overwhelming). She is so giving and so selfless. She is so strong but at the same time is learning to let us help her when we can! :)
She is also an amazing Nana to three girls and one boy. My girls adore her and they already know that Nana is going to pretty much give them WHATEVER they want, lol. That is a good thing though. That's what grandmas are for. I am so glad my kids have a Nana that loves them so very much. I feel so blessed that my kids have the grandparents that they do!
