I have the best Mommy on the planet. There I said it. She was just a baby herself when she had me at 16 and she did it all by herself. She wasn't raised with the best example of great parenting. Her mother died when she was 3 and my grandfather...well... he was less than adequate. So I am often flabbergasted at how she was able to be the incredible mother that she was and continues to be to this day. No matter what I threw at her, coming out at 15, being arrested, dragging her through the hell that was my addiction, she has always been my biggest dupporter and best friend.
It is because of her that I so desperately want to be a parent. It is because of the incredible and unwavering love that she gives to me that I want to pass it on. I am so grateful to have such an exemplary example of what it means to be a parent. I love you Mommy! You are going to be UNSTOPPABLE as a Grandmother.
I am curious to the other same gender parents. How do you handle Mother's and Father's day? Do you share one? Split them up? Share them both? Tony and I have been wondering how that's going to look for us. We appreciate any ideas.
Happy Mother's Day to all the mommies! And daddies that are also mommies!
