The Mencats made a lovely Mother's Day brunch this morning for me and my awesome Mother-In-Law...
The boy came up with the menu. Bacon and cream cheese stuffed French Toast.
The boy made me a little heart carved out of oak.
This is the boy with my amazing Mother-In-Law. She just got back from Burma.
"My mom rocks!
She taught me how to make hospital corners and do sutures like a nurse (I'll show you the scar later) She taught me how to re-finish furniture.
When a teacher wanted to send me back a year because of my dyslexia, she got me tested, but then wouldn't let them move me up a year.
She taught me how to grow tomatoes like a farmer and how to curse like a sailor.
She once got in trouble for riding a donkey through a hotel rec-room on a family vacation.
Because of my mom, I love travel, shows on PBS and drinking tea. Sometimes I spell color with a 'U' in it.
Because of my mom I love to read and cook. I can iron.
She's the first person to call if you are hurt or in trouble, because she will get you out it and/or tend your wounds--then threaten to beat the crap out of you.
My mom rocks!"
In case of the zombie apocalypse or getting stranded on a desert island these are the two people that you want on your team. By sundown you would have running water, electricity and be sipping a cocoanut cooler in a handwoven hammock in a two story treehouse.
Tonight we are hanging out with my mom. :-)
Happy Mother's Day!
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. ~ Marcel Proust
