A Dedication to our Mom's!

I have a lot of memories of growing up with my mom. I remember always hearing the same song when I had to wake up to go to school. "It's time to get up, it's time to get up, were all in our places with bright shiny faces..." I used to get so annoyed because I never wanted to get up, but it was still a good way to wake up. When I was older my mom would always ask me "How was school today, what did you learn?" I would always answer nothing. But I knew how much my mom cared about me and what I was doing. Now that I'm a dad I'll be singing to Callie and bugging her about what she did at school just like you did Mom. I love you very much, Happy Mothers day.

Recently, my sister posted something on her Facebook that reminded me of family meals at my house! There were a number of times that I was the last one at the table, because I didn't finish my meal. Most of the time it revolved around my vegetables! My mom would look at me with those serious eyes, wave her finger at me and tell me that I had to finish BEFORE the microwave timer went off...I have no idea what would have happened had I not finished, but that finger wave put the fear of God in me...I finished! Many years later, I put tin foil in the microwave...yes, I ruined it. My mom didn't get mad at me...for some reason, that darn microwave holds one of my most favorite memories with my mom...throughout all these years...that darn microwave seems to be included in my memories :) Now I look at it as my back rest...yes, you read that correctly! I, or my mom, sits up on the counter, leaning against that darn microwave...You see, mom...My favorite thing to do with you is sit up on your counters, late at night-sometimes until 2 in the morning...just TALKING :) Talking about anything and everything! That microwave that set a time for me, that I ruined, that made our countless batches of popcorn...and that darn microwave that became our back rest :) You mom have been the most amazing woman in my life. You have loved me and supported me in everything I do! I know I am going to be a good mom to Callie and any other children we have, because I have such a good role model...
Even though our microwave is up off the counter...I hope that Callie wants to sit on our counters-talking endless hours into the night! I love you mom!
Happy Mother's Day!

Love,
Cori
