J. Everyone loves new babies, but our mom might love them more than anyone. Nothing makes her happier than to see a stroller approaching when we are out and about. Our neighbor who took her to lunch yesterday told me that the highlight of the lunch was running in to a mom with a toddler and a three week old baby. She said our mom was thrilled to see the baby and went right into "mom mode" offering the harried mother some words of advice. Clearly those days of taking care of the kids were our mom's favorite. She always said "little kids, little problems". I wish we could take her back to those days where she was so happy and full of wisdom.
Too bad she doesn't love puppies as much as she loves babies . . .
