Happy Birthday, Mom!

It's my mother's birthday today, and guess how she's celebrating?

She's spending over six hours in a car, driving to visit us!

She's going to see her grandchildren. She's going to see her grandchildren and her daughter and son-in-law all playing leads in a musical. (Now, tell me that's not a treat for a grandmother.) She'll get to play with her grandchildren, and hear them sing and shout and belly-laugh and argue and say amusing things, like this:

Bantam12, patting his face worriedly one morning at breakfast: "Mom, can your upper lip get pins and needles?"

Or this brilliant piece of advice from a 4-year-old big sister to her 2-year-old brother (obviously based in her vast experience):

"Don't put your nose in Bantam16's socks. His socks smell gross."


Happy Birthday, Mom! We're looking forward to your visit!

(You too, Dad, even though it's not your birthday!)
