|Mom and baby me|
You are incredible. I always hope that someday I will be as fun, talented, beautiful, and hilarious as you are. I love when you think something's really funny and cant stop laughing. I love how you are a crazy cat lady. I love that you still watch Survivor. I love how understanding you have always been. You were the only thing that got me through high school. I think about how you used to let me skip school all the time. If I was stressed, sick, or just didn't feel like going you would let me stay home. In fact, sometimes you were eager for me to stay home too so we could go window shopping or out to lunch. I don't think even Dad or Clarissa realized how much school I missed so that we could hang out together. When I felt really alone and completely friendless, I always knew that you were there. And better yet, most times I had way more fun with you than with people my own age. Those are some of my favorite memories. I love how you are there for me and despite how busy you are, how much all of us kids know you love us. I am so much of who I am because of you. I am loving, creative, hilarious, and beautiful (We certainly know I didn't get my looks from Dad. Haha. Love you too, Dad!), all because of you. I hope you know what an impact you've had on all of your kids. You cranked out some pretty happy, successful children and you should be beyond proud of yourself. I love you, Mom. And I'm so grateful that I chose you and Dad to be my parents. Thank you for all you do and have done for me. I can't wait to see you in 4 days! We're going to rock New York big time!
