I have the most understanding mom in the WORLD! Her last year’s birthday present hasn’t been delivered yet. I haven’t even made it yet… that makes me the worst daughter she has!
This year’s birthday present can’t be made yet, so I’m off the hook for now on THIS one. However, I didn’t send her a card, which proves, yet again, that I am her worst daughter.
Every year as I create my Year In Review Shutterfly book, I order an extra one for her birthday gift. Since her birthday is in September, I have to give her the gift after New Years since I want to put everything from the current year in the book. I know what you’re thinking… why not give it to her for Christmas. Or Mother’s Day.
I don’t have an answer for you. This is just the deal we have! And I’m falling really behind! It’s a good thing she’s a very nice, sweet, awesome mom. (Yes, I’m buttering her up in hopes that she’ll forgive me, since I won’t even be able to call her on her birthday as I won’t be home.)
Mom, even though we didn’t get a card in the mail and I didn’t complete the 2011 YIR book anytime in the last 9 months, I am thankful you’re my mom and that tomorrow is the day the entire world celebrates your life!
Maybe you’ll forget all about my shortcomings if I put a cute picture of Parker at the bottom of this page… get ready:
