Memories

Last night we went to the choir pop show for the school at which I taught before Carleigh was born. Not only was it a pop show, it was the twentieth pop show for the head choir director with whom I worked for two years! He is such an awesome director. The new assistant thought it would be a neat idea to invite all of the past swing choir members to come and sing a tribute to Mr. Vaughn. There were about 50 people from past years on the stage at the end of the show singing "In My Life," a song from Mr. Vaughn's favorite group, the Beatles! Even though I didn't go to that high school, I was his very first assistant choir director, so I had the privilege of singing too. It was so much fun seeing all of the students I taught and seeing such a great guy honored by so many. There were some tears shed last night!

Of course, I'm also thinking about Mother's Day today. I can't believe I'm the mother of four children! Holy moly! That's unbelievable!! It's a hard job, probably the hardest one I'll ever do, but it's worth it. We have such sweet kids. They are funny too. Last night I received a text from our sitter during the pop show about how Carleigh was cracking her up. She said, "Carleigh is a like a 20 year old in a 6 year old body!" She had the sitter in stitches the whole night.

Before we left last night I pumped a bottle for Cora. Luke saw the pump and the following ensued...

Luke: is that how you get milk out of your boob?
Me: yes, it is.
Luke: how does it work?
Me: well, you hook these up to the machine, and it has a pump that gets the milk out.
Luke: I want to see!
Me: no.

I hope all you mothers out there have a great day. I realize there are those of you for who Mother's Day is not so happy, or maybe a little bittersweet. I'm thinking of you too and saying a little prayer for you today.
