My mom and I at Ricos after my college graduation two years ago.
This year I have gotten the wonderful opportunity to slowly become somewhat of a part-time parental figure myself. So I have even greater respect for all the women in my life who are mothers. I've caught my own mother's signature phrase's spilling out of my mouth:
"How do you know you don't like it? Your tastebuds change as you grow older."
I'm very lucky that the child in my life accepted me right away. Several months ago he coined the phrase "half stepmom." He explained his logic that I fill the role of a step parent, but we haven't made it official yet. I like this.
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms in my life.
