For My Kids

Dear Jenna,
Thanks for making me a mom. Because of you, I’ve been a dance mom, a room mom, a cookie mom, occasionally an overprotective mom—cue the Jewish mom—and, so you tell me, a cool mom.

Dear Andrew,
Thanks for making me a boy mom. Because of you, I’ve been a scout mom, a swim mom, a water polo mom, a one-time stage mom, a working mom (to pay for all of your activities 😉 ), and, of course, a proud mom.

P.S. Thanks to both of you for giving me the gift of motherhood and endless content for my blog. (#bloggermom) You are the gifts that keep on giving. And you are such good sports! 😀

Dear Chloe,
Thanks for making me a dog mom, something I never thought I would be. Because of you, I’m the dog mom who stands out in the rain and snow waiting as long as it takes for you to pee, who worries about your little cough at night, and who has an “I love poodles” bumper sticker on my car.

    Welcome to motherhood and it was a pleasure to see your children although they look more like adults. As for a dog mom I’m one as well who will stay outside and long as they want to. I put my dog Pheobie to bed with a blanket and sing to her.

    I’m pretty sure with all the sports activities you’re also Taxi Mom, Snacks Mom and Laundry Mom!

    I like to believe that I am also my son’s friends’ Cookie Mom. It has become a tradition that he brings my chocolate chips cookies (made with brown coffee butter) to the soccer Champions League final that they watch on TV together.
