Happy Birthday Mom!

Today is my mother's birthday. Please don't be jealous because I have the best mother in the world. Really. Often people will say to me "Oh I just love your Mom" or "You're Mom is so sweet"...I can't help it but I have to agree! She simply IS the sweetest Mom!

I could stand to learn a few things from her including patience. Mom's favorite story to tell is the time where the kids and I came over for a visit and I had been very cross with Jack in the car on the ride over. Of course she took Jack in her arms and talked to him with a soothing tone to undermine, woops, I mean explain my actions. In the end though she told him he must listen to me and that I was the boss. His reply? He looked up at her with his big brown eyes and cried "But Beppe, you don't understand. She's pretty ... but she's MEAN!
