I think that is the nicest thing you have ever said. Thank you. I am saving it for those days when you are busy with "other things" and I can take it out and read in again and again. I love you, too. It was a joy and, "It was fun."


I love that you acknowledged your grandma, too--we are all the products of long lines of strong, resilient women. And my grandma had the packs of Big Red in her secret hiding place--I chewed enough one day to puke red all over the restaurant table one afternoon. Hmmmm...not sure I've been able to chew it since!

Loved reading your mom's comment, too.


I so knew you had a blog before today. But you knew that.

Great post. I might steal it for mine. Ha.

What is it with play-pens? My step-mother is always trying to put my kid in one.


That was amazing and your MOM commented. ARGH...am..dying..from cuteness..of..it allllllllll (dead now).


dude, the mr. t video traumatized me. please issue a warning in the future.

Very nice things to say about your mom and my mom. By the way what's wrong with playpens they keep little ones safe and out of trouble you wait they can really get into mischief. Aunt Mary


Dude...I was already all sappy from your post and then I saw that your mom commented. She's so sweet! I love it!

By the way, whoever said you were well-adjusted? Only a sick man would find the brilliant links that you post!


That was great. Brought back memories of my grandmothers, their kitchens, and their cuteness.


What is it about Grammas and Yahtzee?! Some of my favorite memories of my grandmothers invole that game. The best memory was the "Gramma Smackdown" when one Gramma busted the other for cheating" after being silent about it for about 5 years. She just ciuldn't take it anymore!

Great tribute to yor mother and grandmother!

Great post! How cool that you recognize not only your mom, but your grandma too. I can only hope that one day my son will have some of the same memories.
