Ode to mi mama

Today is my mom's birthday.
A few things you should know about her:
She is very smart and very witty.
Lennon will only sleep with her.
She bakes the most beautiful and creative sugar cookies for her grandsons.
My mom gets Tod.  And loves Tod.  My boys hate when she leaves.
If I could use one word to describe my mom it would be PROACTIVE.  A close second would be CLASSY.
My mom makes me feel like I am good at stuff.
One time when I got home late from a date my mom was waiting in her robe on a bench in the front yard.  I was soooooooo embarrassed then but I totally get it now.
My mom is close to all four of her kids.

If you know my mom or know OF my mom, tell her how great she is.  

Happy Birthday Mom.
