About being a mom; part 3

I'd have tons of nice pictures to show you, but I'm at my mom's and my camera (which I haven't brought the usb cable anyway) 's battery died today! So no pretty pictures of the in-law's Greenhouse, baby ridding the tractor with grand-dad and improvised family photo session in the awesome light of spring there was this weekend (endless fields and St. Laurent river background included....)

The weather is awesome. Just how I like it. Hot, really hot, humid, with a great warm breeze.

I've spent the night talking with my mom, outdoor. I love those moment. She talks about her mom that died before I was born, she talks about her grand-mothers and grand-dads. She talks about how was her life when she was young. She doesn't do that so often.

I stated that I always wanted to be a mom. Well, for mine, it had to come. When she realised she was pregnant, she had 5 months done already!
So much for the maternal fiber!

And she never wanted kids. So I can't blame her for how bad my dad is as a she obviously haven't chose him to start a family...

But now she's glad to have us... she prepared herself well to be a grand-mother this time!

She ended up raising me alone, it was only the 2 of us. She had 3 jobs sometimes, none of which concerned her art teaching bac. But I was an easy child. No problem in school, not demanding this I knew we couldn't afford...

And she taught me great values that'll carry and teach all my life.

So in all, even if she never thought she'd be a "good enough" mom, she was more, and she's turning into a wonderful grandmother as well.
