I'm Nacho Momma!

Today is mother's day. It is the day that children show their moms just how much they love and appreciate them. Or if the children are too small, it is the day that the fathers show their wives just how much they could not raise their children without her.

Gina is an absolutely beautiful and wonderful woman and mother in one of the most difficult jobs around (mother of 4, ages 1 to 6). Life would be much easier if you could drop the kids off at school or day care and go to work each day. That would be a break. Instead she pours her life into these 4 small lives. She cooks, cleans, changes diapers, wipes dirty butts and tries to make the children's lives exciting and educational. I love her and could not do it without her.

This morning, I woke up too late to make her breakfast in bed (pain meds from recent surgery). But I beat her to the kitchen and attempted to make her an omelet. My first one, it wasn't pretty, but she ate it anyway. Then we gave her a cute card that the kids traced their hands on and gave her the Harry Connick Jr. Soundtrack to "When Harry Met Sally." She loves the movie and today's theme songs for mothers day will be track 1, "It Had to be You." We will probably watch a chick flick at some point today. She's worth it, even if she is not my mother.
