She's been there always. She is there, always. Mum listens to the things that I am too scared, too worried, too goofy, or too ashamed to tell other people. She says 'yes' to people who need help. She is creative, fun, intense, and has a green thumb that none of her kids seem to have inherited. She is a strong individual who nevertheless supports her husband and builds her life with his. She has lived in like a million and a half places and somehow managed to make each one into a home.
Basically, the world didn't know just how much good it was in for when a squalling little baby arrived on the second of June, 19... something or other. Happy birthday, Mum.

Carla and Alastair -- you know me. My desk isn't complete without a dead fish hanging round somewhere...
Katie -- it is SUPER cute.
Abbie -- you're right; she is lots of fun. Today Mum got back to some of her work at the computer to find the kitten had added four whole pages of text :D.
Caitlin -- you should get one! Kittens for all the world! :D Love you. xx
Andrea -- and here's another one! Wonders will never cease.
Cara -- aw, kitten love!! Two and a half weeks? They must be teeny! (and I owe you an epic email!)
Lauren -- someday, Abby, this technology will exist.
thelittlebluefishy -- yay! I'm glad you liked the pics :D. I don't know if I'm a glutton for punishment or not but I do love studying. I do not love it when it feels like it's my whole life, though :P.
Sarah -- aw, I can imagine Gracie would love a kitten. Do you think she'll ever get one? I hope your studies are going great. Are you nearing semester's end -- and all that busy essay-writing that comes with it?
Meaghan -- ;)
Amanda -- we think so too :D
