My Mom Nancy visited L.A. this week and for both of us it was a very special, meaningful trip. I’m the middle child of three sisters and I have been fighting for my mother’s attention my whole life!
I got to have her all to myself for three precious, delicious days. I took this photos on the beach in Santa Monica near the pier.
We sat on the sand together and talked, looking out at the ocean. We even meditated for two whole minutes like real crunchy California people! (It felt like five.)
My mother has always been a natural beauty, and now she’s almost 70. It gives me a lot of hope that we can be vibrant and live healthy, full lives for a long time, we have many years to come, girls.
She couldn’t stay long, because she had to get back to my stepfather. He misses her and needs her around. I wish she could’ve stayed longer, and I think so did she.
She said the trip was a dream come true. Probably because she sees I’m heading towards the right track in my life…
I’m a work in progress not perfection!
Here my Mom is whispering something to Bex in the back seat on our way to the L.A. Zoo. Probably some gossip about his own Mommy as a little girl…
I hope those two aren’t plotting against me. They could achieve World Domination.
Unfortunately, we had been promising Bex a big zoo day when his Grannie Nancy came to visit, and we got there one hour before the zoo closed. We only got halfway through the animals when the zoo cops told us to turn around and exit!
I felt terrible for poor Bexon. We turned it into a game that we might get stuck overnight in a cage at the zoo if we didn’t leave before they locked us in. Now Bex is probably traumatized for life.
Seeing my Mom bond with my child is heaven to me.
I adore my silly, smart, lovely and loving Mommy and I’m so grateful to be my mother’s daughter.
