happy mother's day

craig and the boys took me to see miss saigon. i sobbed every time Jennifer Paz uttered a lyric, i was so moved.

my kids' perception of their mother is pretty accurate. it's scary.

Mom
Caring, loving, friendly, and skillful
Sister of Joy, Daughter of Skill
Lover of photography, family, and sleep
Who feels joyful, energetic, and loved
Who needs affection, time off, and helpers
Who fears too much work, tight schedules, and not enough sleep
Who gives love, help, and care
Who would like to see all the Disneylands, the Philippines again, and Rome
Resident of (address)
Mommy
