My Momma is...

My Momma is a baker. When I was little and we all lived as a nuclear family, my momma owned a bakery. The only one in our tiny little town. We would march past the bakery on the way to school and get our breakfast, because Momma had been there since 4am. She specialized in “Nisu” a finnish word for sweet dough. Think cinnamon buns, but also bread made from the dough, ‘magic twists’. Mmmm. She also specialized in cakes. Cake decorating, to be precise. She even taught classes. This was years ago, before fondant and painting pics on a cake. Every rose was hand crafted out of frosting. Every word was written out in cursive, in frosting. She still decorates that way and we have the BEST cakes at our functions. She also sends baked goods as her Christmas gifts and this year? I’ll get them fresh, baked right in MY KITCHEN!

My Momma is a teacher. She taught cake decorating classes, she taught me to be frugal, she taught me to love unconditionally, she taught me to stick up for myself, she taught me to laugh, she taught me to cry, she taught me that nothing in the world is worth more than your child’s happiness.

My Momma is a nutcake.

‘nuff said.

My Momma is a healer. She has magic powers. Even through arthritic hands, she can cure sore and tired feet, brush the stress out of your head, and remove tension knots from the shoulders like a Russian masseuse.

In 3 sleeps, I will have my Momma with me.

My kids will get to snuggle with Gramma JuJu and help her bake and “do art” with her. My husband will have free time in Manland so that Momma and I can watch stupid movies from ABC Family and The Hallmark Channel.

My Momma. My healer, my baker, my teacher.

My Momma.

Just think:

In only three days you'll be welcoming her and kissing her through your prescription oxygen mask and heaping deadly germs at her frail little frame.

Some daughter you turned out to be.

Mommak you have me crying. I didn't have the best father...buff said...but my mom? She's something that I hope my son sees in myself. Just how you envision your own mom. Sigh. I am bawling. Sometimes I don't think I'll ever measure up.

My momma didn't bake a lick. But she sure does kick ass at watching chick flicks!
Yay for your three sleeps from now.

How cool that she owned her own bakery and taught classes! That is my dream someday. I hope you feel better soon and have a blast with your Momma. can tell her that I'm up for adoption.

Just sayin.

I am extremely jealous, but happy you are blessed this way, and that you know it.

Have a wonderful Xmas season, and I can feel the joy of watching all those ABC specials, from way over here.

Jealousy happy for you.

Momma Sr. sounds awesome. But with a kid like you, she had to be pretty full of bodacity herself.

Well, this is good news. But you neglected to mention the most important part of having a mom visit - you get to nap. Hooray for moms!

I would like your Momma to adopt me. Think you could arrange that? Will be so much fun being sisters.

I love this post and I am soooooo seething with envy right now. Your mom sounds amazing, like the type of mother every child deserves.

My mother is the exact opposite of yours. Sometimes I get sad that I'll never have the type of mother you have but then again, it just motivates me to be a better mother to my own children so they never have to feel like they were deprived...and hopefully they'll write sweet things about me just as you have for your mother!

And grandma kiss sounds awesome. As they say, the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree.

Love your description of your "nutty" mom...I have one too and often don't appreciate her as much as I should! Thanks for the reminder.

I love that you love your mother so much! She sounds absolutely perfect. I wish I could decorate a cake. I need to take a class from your mother. Where did you say you live again?? Maybe I can stop by for a quick lesson while y'all are watching a Hallmark movie. Bad idea?

This makes me smile so big. What a beautiful post honoring your mother! My mother too is of the 'old school' style of cake decorating. She used to have a cake business and the family will appear out of the woodwork when it is time for birthdays requesting her cakes.

Enjoy, savor, create memories.... enjoy your time with Mom!
