My firstborn Aaron was my "Little Man." We did everything together. He was my shopping buddy and I was his biggest fan. He was so darn smart too. There wasn't anything that kid couldn't figure out for himself. He was so polite and well mannered that adults would come up to me in the store and say what a well behaved little boy he was. That was music to my ears. (sorry the pictures are so blurry. i had to take pictures of pictures for this post)
My "Little Man" is now my "Big Man". He is 21 years old and will embark on his Senior Year of College this fall. My hubby and I had already been married for 2 years when I was 21. I can't even imagine him being married now. I was Aaron's Biggest Fan when he played sports. He always asked me after each game, "Mom how come you are the only mother I heard yelling when we were playing?" I guess his playing just excited me so and I couldn't control my emotions.
My second little pride and joy was my baby girl, better known as "Sissy Girl." God blessed me with a beautiful curly red head baby girl. How lucky was I. Allison of course hated the red hair. For Christmas one year she asked Santa for a black wig. She loved to perform and sing for us. I thought she had star potential at an early age. I mean what mother doesn't think her little girl has talent!! Allison was such a momma's girl. She would tag after me and try to do everything I did. How easy things were then. (doesn't she look a bit like the lion from the Wizard of Oz?)
Now my "Sissy Girl" is a teenager and she thinks she knows it all. Everything that happens in her life is a major drama. I don't remember it being so hard when I was a teenager. Then ago that was a hundred years ago. Allison is a lot like her dad but we do have a few similarities. We both share a passion for clothes and we love to talk. To this day she still calls Aaron "Brother." I'm not sure she knows what his real name is.
Now I'll share with you what my kids got me for Mothers Day. These are the most beautiful flowers ever. I have been so blessed by my children and words cannot express how much I love them. They are my heart and my soul.
In closing, I would like to say "Happy Mother's Day" to all my friends old and new. Have a wonderful day.
With Warm Hugs,
