Happy Birthday, Mom.

As I mentioned in a previous post, there is an overabundance of friends and relatives birthdays' this time of year. Today is one of the more important ones...yeah - my Mom.

My Mom amazes more ways than one, but let's not digress.

Mom is a much different (more awesome) grandma than she ever was a Mom. Don't get me wrong, she was a good Mom (to all my friends).

But she is a great grandma - at least that's how my kids see her...

Mom Then: You better not come home with any thing less than a "B" on that report card or you will be grounded til the next report card comes home. Really, Mom - ya think I studied more when ya grounded me; I just learned to hate ya more...
Grandma Now: Don't worry G-man, the girls will do your homework in college.

Mom Then: Stay off the furniture. That's for company to sit on...
Grandma Now: Here just put the cushions on the floor so you are more comfortable playing your X-box

Mom Then: You are not leaving this table until you eat every last vegetable on that plate.
Grandma Now: Don't worry about finishing your brussel sprouts. Your Mom never could make them right.

Mom Then: Do I look like Timmy's Mom????
Grandma Now: Timmy seems like a nice friend; you should let G-man go on a road trip with him this summer. What can it hurt.

I luv ya Mom (and Grandma).

It would have been my Mom's birthday June 1st, also. They certainly do mellow with age.

The stress is gone, I guess.

It is amazing how they mellow - makes me wonder what kind of grandma I will be...if ever, I am in no hurry.

Hehe.... we grandmas roll like that. We can be softer because we don't have to be responsible. Anyway, ya gotta give a kid a "reason" to love the old baggy lady who keeps kissin them! Well... that plus just a little "pay-back" :-D

So cool, I'm not a mom yet and I always wonder, if every mom use to say the same phrases over and over again, for generations. Now you confirm my idea (LOL) they do!
