I was talking with my mom, brothers, and sis-in-law on Sunday while at my parents house for Mother's Day and somehow the conversation turns to my "disappointing" past. As we all know, 2 months after Lewis and I were married, Adam was born. Medical miracle? Maybe. Yeah, that's it.
Anyway... my mom says, "You better be grateful that your dad changed his way of thinking after you were born."
And I said, "Of course he couldn't send me away. It really doesn't matter what I did because after he met me he couldn't help but love me and accept me no matter what I do. In fact nobody can. If you meet me, you have to love me and you feel a need to be near me. I am so loved by everyone!" At this point my brother Sam makes a face at me, and I say, "Sam! You know it is true. Tell me right now that you do not love it when I am around. Tell me that I am not always fun and the life of the party." And he smiles and agrees.
Meanwhile my sis-in-law says, " Oh yes Kendra, it is all about you. It is always about you."
So I say, "Whatever. You guys know I love you."
So she says, "Yeah, yeah, we know. You love us."
Hmmmm.... do you think that she meant something by that? Do you think that she meant that I am self centered, naggy and rude? Do you think that she was saying that I love to be the center of attention, making the decisions and have everyone listening to me?
Well yes, yes I do.
On Mother's Day I was listening to the Glee Madonna disk while riding in the car with Lewis and the girls to go and see Babies at the movie theater. I must say that I could not think of a more wonderful way to spend the day. The movie was very cute. It followed 4 babies from different countries for the first year of their lives. (More about the movie in another post.) When it was over Haley immediately wanted to watch it again. Babies on Mother's Day, yeah. Good stuff.
What the hell Jazz? You almost make me want to not watch the rest of the season, no matter how short it might me. Wow! Down by 15? "Boo"zer.
There are only 18 more days in the school year. It can't come soon enough. I need the sun and some sleep which will come once summer is here. I think I can, I think I can. Right Natalie?
