I hope that every baby out there gave plenty of love to their Mommy yesterday (real Mommy or adoptive!). When you sit back and think about all they do, Mommy really deserves a special thank you!
I know I called my stepmother to let her know our thoughts are with her, that we love her dearly and wish her all the best (she is on the other side of the country from us, kind of hard to do anything else).
As for my wife, who also doubles as my Mommy from time to time, I gave her every chance to relax that I could. Our little girl gave her a card, a little painted box she made at school, and a stuffed toy she made with a craft kit that she got for her birthday.
The older kids also did their part as well--older daughter made brunch and dinner for the family, Crepes for brunch and saffron rice and chicken with Kalamata olives for dinner. Son took mom's computer outside and cleared all the dust out, from what we can tell was what had been causing it to crash again all the time. Good kids--I'm happy to see how they've grown up.
She takes good care of me, helping to diaper me, giving me a bottle for bedtime from time to time, and making sure I am basically a good baby overall. I get to have her as my best friend as well, so I consider myself really lucky.
As for my real mother, I don't have a relationship with her (I posted in mature topics about it). It's a long and nasty story that does not belong here, but she does not deserve the title 'Mom'.
