Happy Mother's Day

It's that day again. All together now: 

Happy Mother's Day!

Whhooooo hoooo!!!! Toot, toot! Yaaaaayyyyy! Mmmmmmuuuuhhhhh!

Okay, cheering and fanfare aside, I hope that all the mothers out there - biological or other - have had a grand day. Most of you deserve it. (Hey, there are bad mothers.) Cheers to you for all that you do every day and night. I should have posted this sooner, but I was with my family celebrating Mother's Day. Still, I wanted to wish you Mothers joy in or out of the bosom of your family. (Sometimes, families aren't so great either.)

Yes, I am tardy this year. However, I will share my favorite and best past Mother's Day post. Some, possibly many of you, may not have read it. Or maybe you won't mind re-visiting it?

Last Mother's Day, I had intended to share a list of playscale doll and action figure mothers. That topic will appear sometime this month. I'll put "Mothers" in the title so you can find it.

My Mom had a happy mother's day. All her kids and her grandson were together. No one fought - whew! And she got some shopping in. Yay, Mom. Thanks for putting up with us, siblings and me. Thanks for being the one immediate family member who has always supported my doll enthusiasm. She doesn't read my blog, but she's the best Mom. 

Happy Mother's Day!

Hello from Spain: Happy Mother's Day. Lovely message. Great pics. In my country this day we celebrate the first Sunday of May. Keep in touch

D7ana said...

Hello, thanks for stopping by, and my wish that you both had wonderful Mother's Days - Brini and Marta!

Happy Mother's Day! I want a Tom of my own. Maybe one of these days... ::sigh::

Cindi Mortensen said...

Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day Dana! Though it's been 9 years since my mom passed, I can still feel her with me from time to time. Happy Mother's Day a bit late! :-)

My girls wore patent leather shoes to church too, D7ana. :)

D7ana said...

Hi RoxanneRoxanne, Cindi Mortensen, and Barb the Evil Genius! I hope you all had a Happy Mother's Day!

@Roxanne - hope you get a Tom one day. Focusing on that ... ohm ... ;-)

@Cindi - sorry to hear that your Mom passed. I think I know what you mean about still feeling her with you; My Dad died in June 2005. We remember his funny comments and his attitudes.

My children are all plastic except for one adorable cat. So I thank you for the acknowledgment ;-)

@Barb - oh, those black patent Mary Jane shoes? And those lace-trimmed, cuffed white socks, too? The last time I liked formal shoes, lol. Sigh ... good days they were.

Muff said...

LOL at no one fighting! Sometimes that's the best that a mom can hope for.

Barb the Evil Genius said...

Oh, I forgot about the lace-trimmed socks! One of the reasons that I liked having daughters.

Carrickters said...

Happy Mother's day to you, D7ana. Glad to hear you had a happy day with your family (and also with your plastic and feline family, I'm sure).

D7ana said...

Hi Muff, Barb the Evil Genius, and Carrickters!

@Muff - oh, yeah, that was a bigger present than anything else, lol.

@Barb - ha ha, yes indeed.

@Carrickters - Happy Mother's Day to you, too, Carrickters. Louie had fun before and after company: the plastic crew always have fun ;-)

I missed this post. Happy Mother's Day although late. I hope you and your family had a great time. It is good to see Tommy!

D7ana said...

Hi Ms. Leo! Hope your Mom enjoyed the fun card you got her. Hope you and your family had a great day, too.

Yeah, Takara Tom is a charmer ;-)
