Sometimes Moms and Dads just need a big hug. My life is so much simplier than theirs. We are lucky. When it comes to choices in life mine and my sibs are pretty simple. What kind of food does mom get for us, what vegetable are we having today, is it a apple or strawberry kind of day, and who gets to lay on Moms lap first. Do I throw my toys in the air or play tug of war, does Sam let Trudie lay on the bed without pushing her off, do I actually walk around the yard or does Mom have to put me in the stroller.
Mom has different kind of choices without easy answers and I see her struggle with them. I think my Mom is the type of person who likes to take care of everyone, and sometimes she forgets to take care of herself. Maybe, Sam, I and Trudie should do a "take care of Mom" night and surprize her. I don't like to see my Mom sad. Stella Rose
