Happy 60th Birthday, Mom!
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...
