I love my mom/ uh huh/ my mom is cool...

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.

But now it's time for having fun at school! YEAH!

I wish we had family around, too. We should be each other's family. That would rock.

i know what you mean! my partner and i love living on the west coast, and are usually pretty content to be far away from our families in southern ontario. however, when we talk about having kids, we sometimes throw around the idea of moving back east. we both grew up with active grandparents nearby, and it's hard to think about depriving our kids of that experience. i really don't know what we'll end up doing.

thanks for writing.
