Someone pass me a tissue.....

In the ever changing, never ending role as MOTHER, few moments are more defining than finding a photo like this one…..



…..on your #3 daughter’s camera card.


I felt like a sapling during a tsunami, as waves of different emotions surged over me.



While looking closely at the photo (so as to ascertain which of my children I might inflict my maternal praises on) a whole new tidal wave of pride loomed on the horizon.

Not only is one of my offspring amazingly proficient at hostage retention BUT they do so with unmistakable compassion, as evidenced by the padding on the section of the drawstring (from their Dad’s pajama bottoms) that encircles the sacrificial lamb/captive.


Someone please pass me another tissue……………….

So funny! So which of your kids is the talented hostage-taker? I'm guessing it's the kid who had scouts training. Probably earned a badge at knot-tying :-)

I am no help with this photo but my older sister Jennifer and I could teach the someone in question how to tie a younger sibbling to a toilet. It works best if you choose a bathroom with no window then turn out all the lights and play a tape of the Boogie Man. That's- uh- just a wild guess. What would I know about this kind of sibling torture?

I survived the wedding. It's so much easier being the mother of the groom, that's for sure. I've been thinking about you and hope that it's not been too stressful for you. Take care. Cindy
