"Big Ol' Baby?"

Am I the only thirty something year old who just misses their "Mommy" from time to time? Am I the only grown woman who wants to stomp their feet now and then? Am I the only wife/ parent/adult who wants to hide from the world in their mother's embrace once in a blue moon?


Once again I have neglected to appreciate who and what a person does for me. My mother came to B.C. to help me out with the kids when Mike took the job in CA. It was such a relief to have her here. I knew my children were cared for and happy while I was working. But alas, she had to return home. She stayed a month, a very short month indeed. As I cleaned out the area of my room she was staying in, I became very sad to see the bed and dresser go. I want her back! (stomp! stomp!)My mom and I have been through alot together. She's had a tough life and tried to make the best of it with the knowledge and skills that she has. I've done my best not to be a burden to my parents over the years, as the hand of life they've been dealt.... not the best. Never the less, my mom loves and supports me unconditionaly. Whenever I need my ego stroked or someone to agree with me no matter how wrong I am... she is there. Even when I was a yucky teenager, she did her best. No matter how badly I treated her or behaved, I knew... I knew who I could always turn to. I want her to know I love and appreciate her, especially when she is an awesome Grandmother to my children. They love her dearly. Miss you Mom... come back soon!

The last few times Chris's mom has left I was all "No! Please don't go! Do you really have to leave?!?!?" It was nice having somebody to play with the kids while I made dinner, or make dinner for me, or clean up, or just be here while the baby napped and I ran to the store... etc. I always thought living next door to somebody (friend) would be great. You could call up and say "Hey I need to run to the store, will you turn on your baby monitor and keep an ear out for my kid in case he wakes up?"
