Picking up the Pieces

My sweet mom came and left after a whirlwind week of emergency TLC. Nothing is better than having your mother take care of you.

She did all the usual good things. Like locking every single door in my house and car at all times, making improvements in the guest suite, taking the kids out for one-on-one shopping trips and lunch dates, playing games, reading books, and applauding the show-off variety show which is on 24/7 at our house.

There was a little naughtiness, too. Like keeping me up WAY past my bedtime with all her juicy stories, trying to lure Em off the straight and narrow, and laughing at the grandkids' impertinence. But, hey, that's what Omas are for, right?

Thanks Mom, we love you to pieces!!

I'm glad Oma could take care of all of you. She seems like a terrific grandma.

On another note, I had a really long dream about you and your family last night. It included an indoor swimming pool in your house, a husband who cooked with beer, and me and my family visiting. Weird.

How fun! She does seem like a fantastic grandma and just an interesting person all around. My dad really enjoyed being neighbors with your parents and getting together for dinners.

Oma is pretty fantastic. We are jealous of your emergency TLC. I think I'll create a fake emergency to see if we can get her here. I'd love some Oma story time for the kiddos.

Oh, such fun! My parents come in a couple of weeks for Jane's baptism. I'm sooo excited. Parental visits are the best.
