Mother of the Year Award

This just in. No one else need apply this fiscal year. My daughter Chloe just informed me that I was awarded the title "Mother of the Year". As proof, she bestowed upon me this beautiful trophy (which looks a little like building blocks). It is surprisingly similar to the table centerpiece she gave me just last week.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank my two beautiful daughters, one long-suffering exchange daughter from Beijing, and all the animals we have managed to keep alive for another year. I couldn't have done it without my wonderful partner who steps in to batt by taking the girls to the park so that I can sew them clothes and do laundry. He also stops by the grocery store almost daily and brings me what he wants for dinner. All I have to do is cook it! When I am not at work designing and building police departments and animal shelters, I am busy playing Candyland and watching Elmo and Cailou with my family. Awww! This is the life.
