Ike's mom here: This is my second post today, I guess I have a lot to get out. After reading Mason Dixie's latest post, I am using Ike's blog to write a tribute to my mom/Ike's gran. I want to thank her for teaching me how to cook, even though it was through osmosis and I didn't even realize it. I want to thank her for passing on her genes which make me heavy on the bottom and not the top so I won't get heart disease. (Although I have some killer muffin tops.) I want to thank her for taking care of me, and listening to me and enduring my foul language and odors. I want to thank her for continuing to try with Ike and not getting frustrated with his standoffishness, because now he loves and trusts her. I want to thank her for passing on her love for animals, it pretty much makes me who I am. I want to thank her for teaching me to appreciate art, words and culture. And lastly, I want to thank her for always looking weird in photos, because it makes me look better!
Happy mother's day mom! I love you!
Oh, and I'd like to admonish her for weighing less than me - that's just not ok!
