My mom is something special. Trying to describe her is like trying to hold onto water with only your hands. There are too many aspects that I miss in the process. I usually try to describe her laugh first. Oh that laugh. It is so unique and funny and carefree. It’s the kind of laugh that other people, without knowing her, listen to and just crack up over. It’s infectious in a way that even Kevin Hart can’t produce (and trust me on that because I love him too).
Over the last week my mom has been here to help after Alan’s surgery. I love having my parents come to visit because it is so cool to see them bond with Aidan. And this kid. Man does he love his nanna.
Thank you mom – for keeping my kid safe and fed, my husband mostly intact, and for staying up late to listen to my silly stories and big dreams.
