Oh Man. This is embarrassing. I should NOT have posted that last post at all.
Today is my mom’s birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM. She’s 62 today but you wouldn’t believe it to meet her.
I figure I’ll tell you a little bit about my mom and why she is so awesome because I don’t think I’ve done that before.
My mom is my best friend. And not in that nerdy, nobody really likes me but my mom kinda way, in the she’s the person I talk to when I get upset and who I like to go to the movies with kinda way.
See, my mom has worked with teenagers as a teacher, then Magnet Program Facilitator, and now Social Studies Specialist, fordecades. So, growing up, there wasn’t anything weird I could do that she hadn’t already seen happen 10x worse. She has always been open and honest and realistic with me, and that makes me the open-minded person I strive to be.
Right now my mom is getting older and she’s starting to display the “crazy-old lady” mannerisms that I do all the time without the justafiability of being close to retirement. I look forward to those days when I no longer have to explain myself and people just shrug when I do weird things as opposed to look at me like I’m nuts.
So, Nane, (that was the name I gave her as a kid because “mommy” was too common) Happy Birthday!*
I made you this because I have no money and you love Jean Luc.
