Mother’s Day Is on the Way!

by Pennie on May 9, 2013

This Sunday my daughter will celebrate her 4th Mother’s Day and I’ll celebrate my 40th!  It doesn’t seem like so much time has passed since my girl was a tiny (10 lb 1 oz) baby.  Each year has presented new and exciting challenges as a mom.  Watching your child open her eyes, then smile, then crawl, then walk, and talk and go to school and date and graduate and go to college and grad school and get a job and date some more and get engaged and get married and have her own children goes by so fast.  When I look at her I still see my little baby!

I always loved the handmade gifts my daughter gave me when she was young; the macaroni necklaces, the plaster of paris handprints, the crayon drawings.  They are the ones that mean the most to Moms, not the expensive cards and what-not we get from our kids later in life.  So this week, I’ll be helping my grandson do his best to create something that she will treasure for the next 40 years.  And I’ll try to get my granddaughter to drool on it, to add her own special touch!

I hope you all have a great Mother’s Day!

I hope you had a Happy Mother’s Day too! I agree with you how fast the years go by.My daughter is 27 and engaged. She’s my only child and it’s so hard to let her go. When she first moved out 6 yrs ago I was depressed for months. I missed her terribly,she was only 10 minutes away. We’ve always been close until she hit her 20’s. I’m so proud of the woman she’s become.She is engaged to a great guy.She doesn’t need me much and that still bothers me. She’s like her dad she doesn’t show her emotions and that’s hard on me too.I try to get her to open up but to no avail. I was like that too in my 20’s. I had her when I was 20 and I’m glad I had her young tho. I can’t wait until they have a baby so I can spoil it rotten and love it like crazy.I enjoy you posts.Thank you :)

I just read your post about Mother’s Day and what becomes important in your life. It brought tears to my eyes as I recall all of the wonderful things my children made for me. I was just going through boxes of things I have saved for my sons. From ceramic mushroom paper weights to dough football helmets and handprints made into turkeys. I am putting the keepsake boxes together for them and then we are going to have a party. They are now 36 and 33 and it is time for them to have them and share them with their significant others.

I never spend money On the Powerball or other local other lotteries! I don’t Buy Scratch off’s either! Other’s who win Good for them but I won’t put my money on those odds!
