My mom had a miscarriage in 1991 when I was about seven. I remember her lying on the couch, tired and in pain. I got a piece of paper and a pencil and wrote out a will for Mom entitled "Mom's Deth." Yes, I actually did, and you better believe that I willed that parrot pin to myself! I guess I just wanted everyone to know that that pin was mine!
I know Mom kept the will since she thought it was so funny and cute and I wanted to take a picture of it to include in my post. We were sure that she'd put it in one of my childhood scrapbooks, but we unfortunately couldn't find it. We did come across these art projects, though. I guess I really must've liked parrots!
As we were looking for the will we found a few other gems from back in the day. Here's a note I wrote Mom for her 40th birthday. (She and I wrote lots of "love notes" as we called them to each other when I was a kid.) I love how I ended the note by saying, "You are my best friend." Some things never change! We've always been close, except for a few years when I was a teenager and not always as nice to Mom as I should've been. I'm glad we like each other so well since we have to spend so much time together!
This is a card made by my sister Kristin after I kicked the thumb sucking habit. I thought it was cute how she said "remember not to suck" on the inside of the card.
This is a funny picture (from 2001 or 2002). I was sitting at the computer typing up a report for school when my mom came across me like this and took a picture. I know it might not look it. but it was actually quite comfortable.
I'm a nostalgic sort of girl, so I always love revisiting the past by reminiscing and looking at old pictures/scrapbooks.
