she is helping me re-stock my house, and i am so terribly appreciative of everything she has given me, especially her love and support. i feel like a kid again, except with kids this time.
the other day, my mom noticed how my cooking utensils were more than slightly sparse. she bought me a pairing knife - i did not have one, and i used it tonight in place of a vegetable peeler. she gave me a frying pan. a nice, cephalon pan. she told me she wanted me to have it. afterall, she said, "i bought it three years ago and i've never even used it!"
i was very excited to add my two new pieces to my cabinets. i unwrapped the frying pan from the newspapers that revealed dish towels that revealed paper towels, all carefully surrounding the delicate, unused culinary necessity. the wrapping job was SO my mom - i love those special mom touches, don't you?
my mom was so proud, and i was so excited!! and when we discovered crunchy and fully identifiable three year old pancake remnants that were encrusted in the carefully cared for pan....well, we couldn't help but burst into uncontrollably hysterical laughter!
ahhhh....i love my mom. i scoured my frying pan, and i love it, too.
thanks mom, for helping me hop into my new life...with frying pans, pairing knives, and lots and lots of love. you are the very best mom EVER! you couldn't sell ice to an eskimo, but you are mine and i wouldn't trade you for anything!!!!
