Happy Birthday, Mom!

January 8, 2007

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.


Update:
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.

That's incentive for getting back into work.

What a lovely lovely hat.

Happy belated birthday to your mom... and early birthday to you!

So, your mom's is a day before R's and yours is 8 days after, and T's is the exact same day as my brother's, C's is 8 days after mine, and your brother's is 3 days after my dad's. I really think that all means something, right?

Happy Birthday to your mom (a few days late). Beautiful hat - what a nice thing to find at work. :) I hope she's feeling better.
