    Cute picture!

    And don’t worry, I call mine Mommy, too.

    Your birthdays must be very close together…?

    Thank you! My birthday wouldn’t be the same without you. I love you too.

    Remember those overalls? Why have parents stopped dressing their kids in Osh Kosh overalls? They are so comfy and cute and never wear out. We used to buy them several sizes too big, roll up the legs and adjust the shoulder straps so that the front comes up to the chin. Simply adjust as the child grows – no need to buy new pants for 4 years!

    I still call mine Mama or Mommy. Just too hard to stop, and why bother!?

    Happy B-day Anna’s Mommy!

    Also? Totally with you on the ‘unfancy kitchens’ issue. Love the ones you picked out!

    my brother and i went from calling my mother mommy to momma. we both still call our father daddy. when we were in the army someone gave my brother a hard time for calling our father daddy. he blew them off – “i’m from texas. that’s how we do it there”

    my daughter, now 20, still calls me mommy and, i have to say, i so love hearing her say that. mommies are special 🙂
