My best friend

This is my mother with her two dogs: Magy (pronounced "majee" as in the french word for magic=magie) the black Pomeranian and Mopette (pronounced "muppet") the grey and white poodle/schnauzer mix.

My mother (MamanKoolAid) is my best friend. We do a lot of things together: shopping, crafting, talking. We even have the same job but in 2 different schools.

When I moved out of the house (almost 6 years ago now) I promised to her that I'd visit every week, even though we don't live THAT far apart. And I've kept that promise (and still keeping it.) I usually go to the house on Wednesday night because it cuts the work week in half and also to watch Lost with her when it's on TV. I also go to the house on Saturdays. It used to be every Saturday but now I'm cutting it to every other weekend so I can do other stuff like go out (which hasn't happened yet) or clean my apartment (hasn't happened yet either!) I get along great with my mother, I'd say 95% of the time. After all, we're only human! We give each other a lot of inspiration and ideas and it always keeps us busy and happy.

I just wanted to share a little bit about myself and my mother today. After all, I wouldn't be here if it weren't for her! Merci Maman pour tout ce que tu fais pour moi! Je t'aime!

That is so sweet! I am fairly close with my daughter. We're both creative but in different ways so doing art together isn't likely but we still have fun and laugh and talk. Good for you for acknowledging this very important relationship.
