I was talking to my mom in the car on the way home from the root canal about my wedding and the conclusion I came to was interesting so I thought I'd share it with you.
Anyway, we were just talking about how stressed out I was about the wedding and which parts I was stressed out about. (And from now on this is going to be in present tense and generified because I don't want to be all he said, she said.) The idea of having a wedding in three months does stress me out, but the general overall conclusion is that I've had twins! I carried them for 8 months, I had a c- section and I recovered. And now I have a full time job taking care of two babies. And that shit stresses me out like crazy! So...I guess a wedding isn't the most stressful thing I've ever had to deal with. if stuff messes up, I'll deal. I am not Kate Middleton, nor do I have any desire to be.
Right now, the kindest thing my mom has ever done for me (and she has done a lot of kind things) is right after the biggest fight I can ever remember us having, was going and pulling out her old wedding dresses. I couldn't believe it. We had had a terrible day and she called me to her room, telling me, "You aren't in trouble." My jaw dropped, because I was having such a hard time getting past everything that happened that day and she just took my hand and we got past it.
I love you mom. Happy mother's day.
