Why My Mom is the Greatest...Well one of the reasons anyway.

My mom is so wonderful! Today we were supposed to have a girls day with my sister Michelle, but her son Will is sick so she couldn't come. I went to my mom's anyway with the kids and we had lunch together with her sister Gayle. Then, when Gayle left, my mom suggested I go take a nap while she watched the kids for me. (I had a rough night last night with Alyssa. She is sick with whatever the rest of us had over the weekend and is a very sad girl right now). I had a wonderful nap and even had a dream. It felt so nice. It probably wasn't the fun girls day that Mom had thought she would have, but I appreciate it so much. Thanks mom for taking care of me and my kids! I really needed it.

Not only did she do that, but she also watched my older three kids last Friday while Randy and I went to his mission reunion AND she watched all of the kids the weekend before when Randy and I went to see the Hunger Games at the movie theater. She seriously watched the kids two weekends in a row! She is so sweet to me. I am very thankful to have such an amazing mother. She babysits for me, yes, and that is wonderful, but it isn't what makes her so amazing. There are too many things to name, but in a nutshell, she is just the best mom you could ever want. THANKS MOM!

I agree, Heather, you have a wonderful mother! I wish I was more like her. ; )

Amen to that! We are very lucky to have her, especially close enough to watch the kids.
