My Mom and I Christmas 2014

Dear Momma,

I’m sorry for all the times I rolled my eyes and dramatically sighed.
I’m sorry for thinking I was right about everything.
I’m sorry for the times I was disrespectful.
I’m sorry for times you called me with pure intentions and I took my bad mood out on you.
I’m sorry I don’t say, “I love you” at the end of ever phone call.
I’m sorry for not visiting more.
I’m sorry I didn’t spend more time with you when I was a teenager.
I’m sorry I give you attitude when I feel like you’re being overbearing (but in my defense I get my sassy from you and I wouldn’t have it any other way).
I’m sorry about the C-Section scar I left you with. I’m also sorry for the coming a month early the day before your birthday and probably ruining any b-day plans you had, but thank you for not bleeding out and leaving me here without you.
I’m sorry for all the times I visited and expected you to pay.
I’m sorry for giving you crap about the television shows you watch like, Teen Mom and I’m sorry if you consider “crap” is a bad word.
I’m sorry for that time in high school you let me go bowling with Matt and I didn’t come home till after midnight on a school night(they took forever with our food).
I’m sorry if I have ever let you think I believe you are any thing but an amazing mother and role model.
I’m sorry for the bumps, bruises and ouchies that probably scared you more then they hurt me.
I’m sorry for leaving dirty dishes in the sink.
I’m sorry for letting you fold my laundry when I visited from college with a months load of dirty clothes.
I’m sorry that I have Uncle Bob calling you Lois (that’s my pet name for you and no one elses)
I’m sorry I’m not there to help with Granny and Papa more.

I guess the point is I’m sorry for being such a stubborn know it all. One thing I do know is I love you. So thank you for putting up with me the past 26 years (your baby is almost 26…. you’re old! 🙂 )

Happy Mother’s Day!
