I married my Dad
Got this (very sweet) Mother's Day card in the mail today from my Mom and Dad. Not sure I deserved it, after all the years of shirking card responsibility myself, but nonetheless it was appreciated. I hope I can live up to my parents' image of how great a Mom they think I am - at least I had a good example. The humorous part is of course how my Mom addressed the envelope. As she wrote she was probably remembering me reprimanding her for addressing things to "Mr. and Mrs. Jan Schröder" and how I threatened not to open them if they came that way (although, maybe I only made that threat in head?). I thought the mistake was cute, and this is not a way to publicly "call her out" - it just maybe shows how it isn't so easy to let go, even after all these years. I am starting to understand why.
Happy Mother's Day, Mom. Looking forward to seeing you Saturday.
