My Mom is Great Day

I know this is kind of passee blog material but I still can't pass up my chance to write a "my mom is the super much greatest" blog. Seriously, though, she is. I mean my mom could beat up your mom or something....

For her own sake, I won't eulogize her like a sacrament talk on Mother's Day Sunday that makes it sound like she is the icon of perfection. That would just make her mad. I mean, my mom has been known to swear on occassion (okay only that one time - like 20 years ago - it slipped at family night when someone gave her a "wild draw 4" card in Uno) But, I will say that she does have perfect legs. You can't deny that one mom:) And well that also brings me to an important point, she taught me how to love running and....well...that has been one of the greatest things ever.

Also, whenever I get complimented on something I am wearing it is something my mom either gave to me from her own wardrobe or talked me into buying for myself. But the great thing too is that she never "ahems" the clothes I pick out even if I look like a lost gyspy from a Matisse painting. SHOOT! I am starting to eulogize...

Anyway, I love her lots and I am all kinds of happy that I have as lovely a mother as I do. She is always up for a run, art gallery trip, backpacking adventure, an understanding listen about my punk 6th grade students, or a good sit on the hill at Sugar House Park. In fact, that's where this picture was taken. Just look how happy I am to be with her. That's because she's my mom and she is so super great.

Your mom IS super great Cate, I agree. And I don't love my own mom any less for saying so. :) Yay for Cate's mom!

I second the "Cate's mom is a great" motion. There has been more than one time when I have thought to myself, "Gee, one day I hope to be able to be like Cate's mom."

Can your mom teach me to love running? I mean I like it a little, but I only do it occasionally for the exercise. Not just because. And we play Uno every night with the kids before they go to bed, I've been on the receiving end of many a Draw 4's so I know where she's coming from.

Cate, your mom really is hot. Matt, you create a blog. I thought you had one, anyway. You don't have to do the tag...I never do them. But it would be fun to know something weird about you since you are just so normal.

You guys, Matt is so weird!

Yeah, Mom rocks.

I'm glad you take after your mom Cate.

You've been tagged :) haha. See my blog for the questions. I know you probably hate me for this...

Truly, your mom is amazing and I am so glad that I have had the chance to meet her... I just remember how extremely happy she was on your wedding day. Your greatness (and great you are) is your own but I can see how you have benefited from your amazing mom!
