First off … they call her “Gaya”. I don’t know why, no one questions it, that’s just her name.

My mom could not wait to be a granny. Then along came my first child and her entire world was ‘made’.

The I ‘gave’ her another grandchild and so now I’m her favourite child! (Kidding Bear!) Bear being my sister.

As my sister once said of my children – “What do they want now, an inheritance? A kidney? Nothing is too much! Nevermind us?!”

Us being my sister and I.

The funny thing is that she is a completely different “Gaya” compared to “Mom”. Here are a few examples:

  • We were angels, my girls are NOT!
  • We were sh*t scared of her, my girls are NOT!
  • She did not spoil us, she spoils them rotten!! It’s quite appalling really.
  • We thought we were the most loved, my girls actually are!

So anyway, my mom is amazing! She is always there for everyone, her husband, me, my husband, our girls (obviously), my sister, her mom, her sisters, her friends, everyone else in the family, everyone else … ever!

So after a few missed connections, we finally get to have her come stay with us. We will be fetching her & my step-dad tomorrow and she will be here for a week!

Can’t  wait!!!
