    dont you just love the name mother. you are the all knowing and powerful. ask him if he is still sad. and what can grandma do to make things better. maybe a package from the mailman.

    that took a lot of intensive training. one day they went from calling me “mommy” to “mom.” oh no you don’t. after two weeks of having them rephrase themselves constantly (with marc eying me like i was crazy) it suddenly computed. i almost didn’t believe it. success!

    Actually, it’s more “mudder” than mother. But they’re getting there. Mother is what mom and my aunts called Grandma Craven.

    Hey Gayla, this is Sandy. I want you to know that you and your students have been in my thoughts and prayers. A teacher is almost like a mother. She carries an awesome responsibility.
