It’s Almost THAT Time of Year!  (YEA!)

My mom is coming soon! I really, REALLY need a good long visit from J-Mom (as she is known only here and on LaLa’s site).

There will be laughing, shopping, dark chocolate m&ms, and trips to the gym – all in large quantities. And someone to share the Kid Chaos with… or, rather, someone to help diffuse the Kid Chaos… love that.

J-Mom lives in Australia, and comes to visit once or twice a year. We soak up all the togetherness we can during those visits. I love it when the kids are asleep and she and I stretch out on the couch, our heads at opposite ends of a huge brown couch, and our cold feet tucked under each other. We talk on the phone a lot, and email, but I love it when I can see her pretty eyes and her tiny little feet. She has the most amazing ability to remember her dreams, and so when she visits I get to hear them every day when she wakes up. Her dreams are creative, detailed and usually funny. Maybe when she’s here, she’ll agree to share one of them with y’all, too. Not everyone has a mom who shares her dreams, so if she’ll let me, i’ll share her.

I can hardly wait!

Hi Kelsey, What a sweet welcome to my visit. Yes, there will be dark chocolate M&M’s – the Australian version which are weird designer colors of teal, scarlet and mustard (not the same as in the board game Clue-do as it is known here).
Can’t wait to see how much the kids have grown and share the fun of their unique view of the world.
See you soon. Love, J-Mom

Yay! It’s always good to get the J-Mom-combo of M&Ms/dreams/pretty-tiny feet. Very festive.
