She better remember me...

if she ever makes it to the big time stuff...



A small "Hi Mom" for the cameras would be nice.

I think a white hair just popped out of my head.

She would never forget her Mommy and the person who took her for her first try at wind surfing. Just one white hair?

Well, you'll have to remember how busy she'll be.

She'll go from winning a wind surfing contest in the morning to her lab work on cancer cures in the afternoon to her Tony award winning gig on broadway to a late night jam session with her grammy award winning rock band.

Tough to fit a "hi Mom" in there, but I'm sure she'll manage.

Cool!! That looks like fun!

Think of it this way: she'll be in top physical condition, and she'll get to travel to really fun places!

People don't forget their moms. No worry there. And Wait till you have as much gray as I do.

Akelamalu said...

Oh my, get out the hair dye!

Anndi said...

Lu: One this morning! ;p

Travis: That made me feel better... I think...

Leighann: She tells me it's amazing!

Songbird: and worrying me sick...

Charles: *hugs* That helped!

Akelamalu: I have a couple of boxes...

How friggin' fun is that?? I'm sure she'll manage a wave at the camera as she mouths, "Hi Mom!"

Dana said...

It's so hard to watch them grow up...there's a word for that - naches - it's Yiddish for that feeling of pride you get from your child. She'll remember you.

I've been coloring out the whites and greys for some time and my kids don't do anything like THAT!!!
Wow, what fun. Oh but wait, I get sea sick. I'll stay on land and cheer them all on.

Don't even count 'em Anndi. Just pluck 'em and go on.

Chicklet will never forget to acknowledge you. The two of you are completely entwined. That's obvious.
