My Mother's Day

Here they are, the two incredible beings that make me a mom. They share the same parents and couldn't be more different than night and day.

Exhibit A: Absent Minded Professor. Born 15 weeks premature almost 11 years ago, weighing in at a whopping one pound, 12 oz. He was in a rush to get here, and has been in a rush for everything ever since. Moves at hyper-speed. This photo caught him today in a 30-second stop to check for a fossil on the beach. He and I find many there.

Exhibit B: The Mistress of Mayhem. Born on April Fools' Day, after 34 hours of labor. Stubborn and determined. Funny. Bossy. This photo caught her after being told 3 times, "Do NOT go in the water." She's been asking since the ice thawed to go swimming. At least she took her shoes and socks off.

The conversation today...

Mayhem: Have I ever been to a Flea Market?
Absent Minded Professor: Of course you have, banana. Where do you think we got you?!
Mayhem: Well you have the attention span of a flea!

This is what I planned to be doing:

Instead, I was watching the sky, daydreaming, wishing I was with those folks up there...

Motherhood ain't for wimps!

For those of you wondering, that's EZ's Baby Surprise Jacket I'm working on. (No, not for me. My best friend's litle sister is expecting.)
