"ALL WOMEN BECOME LIKE THEIR MOTHERS. THAT IS THEIR TRAGEDY. NO MAN DOES. THAT IS HIS. - OSCAR WILDE, THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST
Mothers Day was great this year... We ate lots of crab and devoured strawberry shortcakes. I seriously have the best mom and mother in law in the whole wide world. I'm not just saying that because they are the biggest fans of this blog either. I feel so lucky/grateful to have women like this teaching me and loving me by example.It's so funny to me how as we grow up and become mothers ourselves that we find ourselves turning into our own mothers right before our eyes. I could only be so lucky if I turned into half the mother my mom is!! Everytime I start to feel bad for myself when I have to take three little rascals into the grocery store I have a funny vision of my mom at Jazzercise class with me bouncing right next to her while my two little sisters were in a playpen on the other side of her. if my mom could manage a Jazzercise class with all three of her girls, then there is no excuse for not making it to the grocery store for me. I may even start excersising if Jazzercise came back. Maybe I'll just have to start my own class even if Ivy is my only client. I really just want to dress Ivy and I both up in those crazy workout outfits anyways. I HEART leg warmers!
The kids and I planted Rach an herb garden and put the kids finger prints all over it. I think she loved it!
Ya Ya and Ivy are turning into the best little friends........
