my mother is coming...


so i have to say goodbye to my little friend in a can till she's gone!
a few fun facts about my mom:
1. she's super healthy, walks to the beach and back every morning (around 6 miles round trip)
2. she's super healthy, eats only organic foods
3. she's super healthy, and thinks everyone should eat brown rice, home cooked meals (every single meal laced with love and time), should have their dietary fiber and vitamins all in healthy food not in pills, and everyone should buy hormone free meat from organic fed cows and chickens.
4. she's a little hispanic lady with a whole hell of a lot of spunk.
5. she comes from a house full of neurotically clean women.
6. she's constantly calling me everyday to tell me of the "dangers" of the world
7. she's a hard core roman catholic who prays the rosary (in spanish) constantly and daily, doesn't miss a day of church, and is planning on getting here on a monday and leaving on a saturday. to make it just in time.
8. she makes me crazy, but i absolutely need and look for her approval, and i think she knows a lot of what she's talking about.
*************************************************************************************
and so the diet soda has been hidden, the house is getting a once over with Clorox, the kids have been prepped of foods we cannot let her know we eat, and i'm a nervous wreck! the big day is monday, she's here for a week, for three of those days i'll be picking up jake and spending some time with him, and then we will come back here and see the kids, and the little hispanic spitfire i call my mother!

She sounds like a fun time. You must feel like a teenager, spraying perfume all over after sneaking a smoke and hiding a boyfriend in the closet. Oops. Maybe that was just me.

Emily said...

Good luck! Sounds like my mom...except she is mormon!

The Christensons said...

The Christensons said...

Your mom is cute though! My mom was here all this last week. Have a wonderful visit with Jake! And enjoy your mom, it's only a week. :)

Felicia said...

I just can't imagine you being the daughter of a hispanic lady with a whole hell of a lot of spunk... :o)

like mother, like daughter...

Felicia said...

Oh, and you can hide the diet Dr. Pepper in my basement if you like.

Felicia said...

Should I keep your chocolate chip ice cream in my freezer 'til after your mom leaves?

Marie said...

Good luck!! I wish you were coming up this weekend.

Oh my goodness! How exciting to be able to spend some time with Jake! Enjoy that!!! That's funny about "you mom's church". It's great that she approves of your change of religion? if she does. Try to enjoy your time with her. :)

How is it that you get to see Jake so soon? That is wonderful. And just know that your mom adores you just as you are. She can't help it~just think of how much you love your own kids and then factor in the many more years she has been loving you and get the picture. I have been a mom for 36 years this Saturday and there is nothing as wonderful. Enjoy!

The Christensons said...

yes bonnie i agree! i always say you dont know how much your mother loves you till you become a mother yourself!

laura.elizabeth said...

You are cracking me up about your mom! I hope it is a good visit despite the stress.

Wow, you get to see Jake- what could be better than that! I am so excited for you- enjoy every minute.

I love your hundredth post contest too- I am so sad I missed it. Man, I better get with the program- I likely publish my hundredth post in May. (Wow, I spend a lot of time doing this- I love it!)

Mindy said...

Good luck, Vanessa! I wish I could meet your mom... heck, I wish I could meet YOU! ;) Love ya!

And don't trust Felicia with your Dr. P and ice cream! I'LL keep them for you. ;)
