My parents came over today for a little birthday cake for C's birthday. They live in the States about 2 1/2 hours away. I wish we could see them more often. My mom is going through chemotherapy and really kicking cancer's butt. It is great to see how good she is looking. She says she is feeling pretty good too. Some days are better than others.
When they come out to visit - or we go visit them - I am just reminded of how far apart we are physically. Both of us, myself and A, have no family here in Canada. And it is hard sometimes. I am envious sometimes of women who have their moms so close by. Especially after C was born. I just wanted my mom around. My parents are day trip people - they don't come and stay - and sometimes I wish they would come and stay.
After C was born A felt similarly - she wanted her mom around too. I wonder what that is... new motherhood and that wanting mom feeling. Oh well.
Anyway this is me tonight. Also feeling a bit nauseous and have no appetite.
