  • lol at #12. I remember my mom saying that to me...the mother's curse. My oldest is only going on 11 and I think I've already said that to her once or twice.

    I miss my mom. This is my 10th Mother's Day without her. She died in August 2000, 2 months after I had my first child. We never celebrated a Mother's Day together.

  • I miss my mom now. She has in poor health and I hope she has a happy time from now on. Anyway, I'm gonna buy a pair of excellent sunglasses for her as we'll go to Hawaii next week.:) Here is a good place to purchase sunglasses,, they have lots of chic and fashinable styles and work hard to meet the customers' needs. I love to buy there. Hope mom like the gift.:)
