Happy Mother's Day

Little me and my mom.

Happy Mother's Day

A very special Mother's Day for me. Sam is back to Wisconsin.

Mother Says
Famous Last Words

If you don't stop, your face will freeze like that.
I only have two hands.
Let me kiss it and make it better.
Because I said so.
Because I am your mother.
Go ask your father.
Eat it, it is good for you.
Don't put that in your mouth, you don't know where it has been.
I don't care who started it.
Get your hair out of your face.
You call that music?
Clear your plate, there are starving children.
Money doesn't grow on trees.
If all your friends jumped off a cliff would you do it too?
Don't ever forget that I love you.
You'll always be my Baby.
