Anyways, I digress from the real reason I'm writing this. I had a moment this weekend that made me so proud and grateful for the "stock" from which I come! It was when I was standing with my father in my friend's yard watching him answer all her questions about gardening. He patiently listened, gave great advice, and was engaged and interested in my friend's plans for her backyard. When we left, nearly two hours later, I was just so proud he was my dad - and that I got to show him off! (Then he came over and helped me with my landscaping for several more hours!) My dad isn't the only one I like to tote around for show and tell. My mom is speaking to my Moms of Multiples club on marriage next month, regularly gives my friends advice, and enjoys really knowing the people in my life. My parents have so many great gifts and abilities and they are both such eager teachers - I love that!
I may not look like Kate Moss, but I couldn't be more proud of the "stock" from which I come...butt and all!
