Mi Madre.

I'm putting together this post while my mom is still here.
Because in about two hours I'm going to look something like this:

It's called an "Ugly cry" for a reason.
I've opted not to make the drive to the airport.  I might not make it back, because I'm not sure how long I'm going to cry this evening.  

I'm going to miss you SO much.

I'm pretending it's not weird to sit on your mom's lap when you are:
a. 25 years old
b. Weigh more than your mom

Yes, she will make this her profile picture.

70's sitcom poster.
Grammy and Friends...? 

It's been fun, mom.  3,000 miles has never felt so big...

I love the pictures! OMG, jealous you get to hang out with your mom for so long (i.e. like she gets to see you, after having the baby, such a great time!!!!).

I miss my boys. And you too.

Can't forget you.

I think there should be a law that mothers must live within driving distance of their daughters.

Your mom is so cute! And, I love your hair!!!!

Be thankful you have such a good relationship with your momma - mine is just awkward... :(

Whoa. 26 days? And Mark was home for 21? Lucky girl. My mom didn't even come to my house after Carter was born. Well, she brought dinner one night, but that's it. After having babies is the only time I actually lived far from my parents because they'd have to come and stay with us...
I've never noticed how much you look like your mom...definitely a resemblance.
You'll survive. I promise. If I can do it, you can do it. And your little guy already sleeps more than Carter so you've got it made. :)
The car. Oh the car. We just had to endure. And there were several times he screamed for up to an hour. It was awful, awful, awful. Once he got a little older, I started giving him dum dums since he wouldn't take a binky. Other than that, we just had to let him scream. And limit car time as much as we possibly could.\
Good luck!!!

Lol, in these pictures I look just like my mom. In pictures of/with my father - I look creepily like him too!

Genetics are weird...
