Happy Mother’s Day…

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there. Unlike some parents to human children, I acknowledge and honor fur moms on Mother’s Day as well.

For my 2021 Mother’s Day, I spent the day having a pajamas pizza party with princess Peanut. Plus ice cream! We played with toys, went for a walk with the boys, and then watched Bobs Burgers. And I know what you’re asking… “isn’t that every day for you?” Well, yes, minus the pizza and ice cream, but what better way to spend Mother’s Day?! No annoying restaurants, no peopling, no parking, no pants!

In the spirit of the holiday, I will share an image of me with my father’s mother – my grandmother, Soledad. She died when I was younger and it is one of history’s greatest tragedies. She was smart, funny, clever, and charming. And had she lived, I think she would have taken the United States by storm! I know we tend to romanticize the deceased, but I do always wonder what it would have been like; what things she might have said, places we could have gone. She was adventurous. I also wonder how she would be with Peanut – I’d like to think she would have gotten a kick at being a great grandma.

Finally, my fur babies…
