Happy Mother’s Day.

Being a mother doesn’t come naturally to me. When I had Vince and Edda, it took me a long, long time (years actually) to get used to being touched so much, to not have my own personal space or my own personal time. You know on Friends, when Rachel had Emma and she could put Emma in the next room for what seemed like days at a time and she still looked fabulous in her clothes and she could still go out and have dinner dates and work long hours at Ralph Lauren and then every once in a while, she’d go pick up Emma and they would coo at each other and that would be that? Well, I seriously believed that Hollywood lie. But now, 5 years after my first mother’s day, I’m finally comfortable being the mom. Hooray for the mothers! Hold your loved ones tight, and give them a kiss good night!

For mother’s day, we climbed Burger Hill.

  1. You seem like a natural to me. The best thing about you and your mothering style is you always seem calm. Even when all heck is about to break loose you just have the best demeanor. And, you still have a sense of humor! Your laugh is one of my favorite things about you.

  2. You are so right…being fabulously glamorous is a thing of the past! I’ll settle for “presentable” at this point. In the end, it is all worth it. When you see the unconditional love in your baby’s eyes, it is all over.

    Your positive outlook on recent events in your personal life is admirable, and will certainly benefit Vince and Edda in the long run. Don’t forget to give us a ring when you’re back in town…I’ll even drive out to Rockville Pike!
