Happy Birthday Mom!

Today is my mother's birthday! I can't believe it's already been a year since we celebrated last year in NYC. That was a sensational trip and guess what? mom is on a plane headed back to NYC today! I'm more than ok with this becoming a yearly thing mom, I'll just need to plan on coming with you next year!

My mom is the best at making people feel really special; especially on their birthdays. She used to make us breakfast in bed, decorate our bedroom doors, take us out of school for a fun lunch and usually make our favorite birthday dinner. Because I live a couple of states away, it's been hard to celebrate from afar. So I just plan ahead and send a birthday package so that it gets to her on her birthday....except for this year.

I planned ahead alright....and sent her birthday present to myself. Sent it to my own address. I guess I've been a little distracted?

I made the call of shame and you'll never believe how she took it....just fine (like I knew she would). She even threw in "All I need from you is your love honey." Trust me mom, you'll LOVE your presents...when I send them to the right address!

Happy Birthday Mom. I'll be praying for you as you lay Carol to rest in Brooklyn on Friday.
I love you.

Happy Birthday Amy! I hope you have a great time with my mom in New York. Andrea I have to admit I am totally jealous. We will have to get on the next trip if they do make this an annual thing.

I had a wonderful time in NYC with friends and my sister. The trip to the Cemetery in Queens was one I will never forget. The only way it would have been more fun is if you would have been along. Thank you for the nice things you remember about me. I love being a mom and you and your brother make parenting a joy. I love you!
