Moms and Stuff.

Thursday, May 8, 2014

Tonight my mom and I went to the Mother Daughter Banquet tonight at our church. We used to do this all the time when I was little, but between not living here for many years, and always teaching dance on Thursday nights, I hadn't been in a long time. I'm so glad we went! We shared a table with some lovely people, the dinner was really delicious and it was nice to spend some time with my mom.

Shorty or giant? You judge.
In fact, lately, I have sort of experienced what it's like to be an only child. Please understand, I am the oldest of five kids, and there are 10 years in between me and my youngest sister. Apparently I was an only child for about two years in the mid-80s but I do not recall that special time! My sisters don't live in this town anymore, and my brothers work jobs with bizarre hours, so lately a lot of things have just been me, Luke and Kathy. We go to church the three of us every Sunday, we had brunch together after Easter mass and they will be the only two present at my graduation this Saturday. Guys, it's so bizarre. My life has been so far from that of an only child I have no perspective at all. But I guess this is what it's like? You, your mom and your dad? HOW DOES ALL THIS ATTENTION WORK?! Colleen? Story? Advice?

All the moms and daughters in their cute hats!

Oh I also won these flowers as a door prize! My mom accepted them on my behalf. Haha. I was in the kitchen chatting with my friend Lisa who was manning the kitchen and saw my mom carrying these flowers back to our table as I was walking back. I was like oh man! Mom! I missed taking a photo of you winning that prize! And she was like YOU won this prize! Haha.

My friend Sarah popped by this evening after the event and saw these flowers on my chair. As I told her that I had won them tonight, she was like "Yeah I knew you had to have gotten them today ... because they're still alive." HAHA. Yep.

Happy Mother's Day to all the mamas I know!
