Happy Mother's Day...

Happy Mother's Day to our moms, and to all the moms out there, especially the ones enjoying their first Mother's Day.

To those moms still waiting...

Your day to eat misshapen, undercooked pancakes made by a small person in footie pajamas, is just around the corner. Hang in there.

My mom is nineteen in the above photo. Doesn't she look ten?!

Chris and Steven in Ecuador above, and Phoenix ( I think) below.

Today I will resist the impulse to deck any woman in a festive hat carrying a free rose.

I will instead, do something that makes me feel much better; give thanks for the incredible gift of having two healthy, loving moms to call my own.

I am lucky.


  1. Happy Mother's Day to you too. I think you're a darn good mom already!

    (PS, I got french toast with powdered sugar and a rosemary topiary so it turns out I like Mother's Day!)

  2. Happy Day to you! I hope that you did not, in fact, deck anyone. And your mom looks about 9. So freakin' cute.

  3. Beautiful women.

    In the second pic, she looks like Natalie Portman a la "V for Vendetta".


  4. Thanks goodness for our child bride momma.

    Thanks for being a great older sister, which is almost like being a mom!

  5. Happy Mom to be Day to you too! It won't be long now for you to get those wonky pancakes and abstract family drawings!


  6. Wow, she DOES look 10! Incredible. Very sweet. You are going to be such a great momma. Wishing you many years of glue drenched constuction paper cards and wilted dandelions!
