My mother. I love my mother. I love her more than anything else. She is sweet and kind. She is witty and goofy. She is a wonderful person. But she's also very silly. She would call it practical.
Last weekend, my mom and I went to the neighbors' garage sales. Baby and kids stuff galore. She picked up clothes and a blanket for Antonio. Some toys for Jack. And a bassinet for me. That's right. My mother bought me a bassinet. (Keep in mind I don't have children and am not pregnant.)
I did consent to it. However, this isn't the first time she has offered to buy me baby items. Thanksgiving last year: My mom and I get a little loopy and go shopping at the Outlet Mall at Midnight (Day after Thanksgiving specials!). While buying Antonio some clothes at the Carter's Outlet Store, she wanted to buy me a diaper bag. (I liked the color combination). My wedding was in six months!
Ultimately, I talked her out of buying the diaper bag.
This is why I love my mother. She makes me smile.
