A Birthday Surprise...

Happy 60th Birthday, Mom!
So, I knew this birthday would be VERY hard for my Mom this year.
For one, she was turning 60 and very depressed about it,
and she also lost her Mom (read post here) this year, and my grandma was always the first one to call and wish her a Happy Birthday
and this year would be the first time that call wouldn't come...
So, after being told, "DO NOT HAVE A SURPRISE PARTY FOR ME!!", I listened to 50% of what she said (isn't that what all daughters do to their mother's??!) and had a little surprise dinner with family and closest friends. I think she had a great night,
we laughed A LOT and cried a little
and thanks to my wonderful cousin, Angie,
it was a Mommy night out because she kept the boys for me :)
All I know about the night for her and my boys is that it included A LOT of sugary sweets and splashing in the bathtub to the point where her walls were WET?!
She won't tell me any more than that...

Looks like you are a great daughter- and your mom makes 60 look GREAT!! She shouldn't be upset about being 60! Be proud she looks that good.

Happy Birthday to your Mom!

Thanks for leaving the nice comment about my Mom's porch. Did I mention that my Mom is 87? One of my brother's is your Mom's age and he isn't even the oldest sibling! I came along a lot later, unexpectedly, I might add!

Have a great Monday!
