You probably recognize The Nutritionist by now. She is wearing the traditional Swedish national dress hand sewn by Farmor. I'm really happy that Farmor's meticulous handiwork is still used today. It's another one of those heirloom/use it dilemmas. We've used this one. When I was a teacher, I wore this for our International Day each year. Doesn't she look amazing? I love my Mommy.
I now want to share some anonymous pictures with you to celebrate Mom's Group. I do hope at some time you have a chance to go read the post because this group meant the world to me, and still does.
Mom of six. We met when she was pregnant with #2. First three are boys. She's a wonder.
Moved away way too soon. Mother of six. Grandparents in the shot. Miss her daily. I thank God for facebook.
Can't say enough about this friend. Two of her three. Time flies.
You probably recognize her. It was her first Mother's Day today. This is from a wedding she attended last fall.
OK OK OK OK. I'm willing to play too. Here's me in blue with The Transporter on the left, the guest of honor, our amazing friend the foreign exchange student on my other side, and since I gave everyone else anonymity, I won't point out which friend the other two cuties belong to. Not that you couldn't find out if you search for the post about the going away party...
So yeah, another milestone for me of putting a picture of myself in cyberspace. My point, however, is that moms come in all shapes, sizes, with differing philosophies, strategies, and ideas. Each mom is unique, with her own reasons for doing what she does. Mom's Group helped us see that, and celebrate it.
~Tina, blessed to be a mom
