Today is MY mom's birthday. I always thought that M. would be born on the same day (and actually, I think that's why my labor never progressed until the pitocin...M. wanted to share her Grandma's birthday). Our family has a strange affinity to being born on "8's".
My mom: January 8
Me: January 18
C: March 28
My brother: April 18
T: May 8
See how nicely M. would have fit in there? :)
Anyway, my brother and I gave mom a set of All-Clad pots for Christmas and her birthday, but I couldn't let her birthday go by with nothing. Mom oohed and aahed over the hats I knit for the girls for Christmas, so I decided to make her one, to match HER jacket, and send it for her birthday. Here's a picture:
And we tucked in a little Grandma page-a-day calendar and hand-made cards from the kids. Hopefully it arrived (at her office) over the weekend so it was waiting for her this morning.
Mom actually was home SICK on her birthday, so no gift waiting for her. Argh! I'm hoping she's well enough to go in today.
