About me

I just Love the Awesomeness of It

I have 4 nephews, and I’m the aunt that swoops in and occasionally takes them shopping for clothes. So yesterday when I arrived to visit my sister I took Noah (below) for a quick trip to Winners to buy him an outfit.

This is the one he chose, the brightest and most colourful one. When I asked him why this was it, he said “I just love the Awesomeness of it!”.

It’s exactly what the colour expert’s nephew should have chosen on his own 🙂 It just doesn’t get any cuter than what kids say. I think being a Mom is the most amazing job in the world. I honour all of you today and my Mom too (below)!

Happy Mothers Day to all Moms! I celebrate the awesomeness of you!!

Well, I am not a "mommie"…but I am still an "auntie"! so in some schools of thought…that is still a form of motherhood!! Happy Mother's Day to your Mom!! and all the Moms in blogland!

    I wonder where he learned his love of color….

    Being an aunt is kind of like being a grandma. You can usually hand them back when they get cranky, don't you think?

    Warm and Colourful hugs to you, Maria!
