My mom, Edna (we call her Fast Eddie), is currently on a cruise somewhere around the Hawaiian islands, so she won't be here on Mother's Day. She's all by herself so I hope she meets a dashing, sexy, older gentleman! This post is dedicated to her.
Mom as a teen. A teen. I so did not take after her.
Mom has 7 of us, and had to raise us on her own when the youngest was only 1 year old. 5 girls, two boys. Yikes. I thought I had my hands full with a dog. She bravely took the entire lot of us camping every summer, and always helped out with school events. I can't imagine how many field trips she went on. One really only needs to "pan for gold" once, tops. One of my many childhood highlights was a "sex" talk using a book about how cats have their kittens. My poor mom! I'm still clueless.
Now mom works at one of our restaurants, Habit, and makes all the bloody delicious desserts. I think the job can be tough for her, but I know she loves all the staff and loves to be busy.
Mom, if you're reading this on board, Happy Mother's Day! We'll see you next week. Hope you like the caterpillar. Like all the pink glitter? What about those pipe cleaners? I made it today, just for you. Remember those days when you loved our egg carton caterpillars? By the way, I have a 'real' present for you ;)
This picture is for all the moms out there. Happy Mother's Day!!
See you Monday for a new Baked On Monday. Have a good weekend everyone!
