Marvelous Moms

Mother's Day is coming up on May 10th. For a chance to win one of 11 amazing gifts for mom, go to The Meanest Mom's blog here and comment.

Mr. B&B and I will be in San Francisco this Mother's Day. Oops...
We both have great moms, though. We wouldn't be here or have each other if it weren't for them. We will celebrate when we get back.

I have lots of moms in my life.

My mom who gave up her teaching career to be a stay-at-home mom and then bravely, eagerly, and successfully returned to said career 16 years later.

My mom-in-law who raised her son to be the man of my dreams and has always made me feel a part of the family.

My Grandma who was one of the few working moms of her time, the first female supervisor at a very large well-known company, and began her college degree at the age of forty and finished it four years later despite having to work full-time all the way through.

My Grammy who, after raising her six children, ran an in-home day care. She and my grandfather also, without judgment, welcomed their children back to their home when they were grown with families of their own, but hit hard times and needed a place to live.

My friend Alison, the first of my friends to have a baby. She is an amazing mother to Alexander. She has shown me how fun motherhood can be.

My best friend's little sister, single mom to Landon. She works full-time, has earned her associates degree, and will be working toward her bachelor's degree at a well-known college in Boston come Fall. Her sister is very proud of her and I think she is remarkable.

There are all kinds of moms out there and all are worth celebrating.
