two birds, one stone

Mother's Day huh?

Ok, I will pay a small service to this most cheesy of holidays. I can't say it came at a very good time this year however. Right after Madeline's birthday and at the end of what I would call a banner week as a mother... (This week consisted of record amounts of the Street and boxes of teddy grahams which has left me doubting my ability to parent... but then again who doesn't have those weeks, right? right?? Please tell me you do?!?)

All I have for this mother's day is some thank you's.

First to Madeline.

Thank you for making me a mother. You make me smile everyday and you give life so much more purpose than it had before. You make me a better person all around and I thank you for giving me that gift. You're amazing.

There is no one else in the world I would rather share my Teddy Grahams with.

The second Thank you goes out to MY mother. Thank you for being the best example of what a mother is. I learned from one of the best and I couldn't have had a better teacher. You taught me how to love, laugh and play. I love watching you teach those same things to Madeline. You rock.
Mom and Elliot, wondering where exactly his diploma is?

(I apologize for not having a photo of the two of us... but this one will have to do.)

Which brings me to my second bird.


After 7 years of undergrad, my brother Elliot graduated yesterday. Way to go Buddy! We couldn't be prouder of all the work you have done!

I have those weeks more often than I DON'T have those weeks.

Molly said...

I hate to seem ungrateful for the wonderful compliment & sweet words... but could you have found a more unflattering picture of me anywhere!? A note to those who don't know me... I do have teeth.

It's true...Molly does have teeth...I've seen them in a cup on her nightstand...

...just kidding!!!

I thought this photo was funny... and remember one of the things you have taught me is humor, or how to laugh. I can't do anything right can I?

Molly said...

Are you kidding? You do almost everything right!

And did it ever occur to you I was being funny about the funny photo? The hilarity never stops!!

Molly said...

One more thing: I showed the solo photo of El to some of my co-workers. They said it looked like one of those photos you get when you buy a frame. I took that to mean it looks model-like. So, Elliot, maybe you should put together a portfolio of photos and go Zoolander on us.


Elliot said...

Yeah, not so much. I can't turn left very well.

And by the way, what do you mean it's a cheesy's not the cheesiest by far...father's day is cheesier.*

* I don't think I've ever used the words cheesy, cheesiest and cheesier in one sentence (even if it is an extended sentence).
