My parents can be a bit much sometimes. And by a bit much, I mean difficult, sensitive, stubborn, outspoken, embarrassing and sometimes just not so pleasant to be around. But guess what, so can I. Being a good, loving and patient daughter is a work in progress-- as is parenting, I'm sure. And aside from those qualities described above, my parents really are the greatest parents I could ever hope for. They're as human as everyone else, and in those moments when they are not perfect, I still hug them and feel so grateful for them in my life. And vice versa. They work hard, they play hard, and they love unconditionally. And they're cute! And funny! Although they are no longer married to one another, they have been present and supportive to me my entire life. I am utterly blessed as a daughter. Really, I am.
Infamous for his goofy sense of humor and his life sayings/preachings/motivational speeches & recycled jokes, here's my Dad with his latest Fbook comment. I can't help but to smile every time he leaves me these little gifts on my wall:
And Mama bear. Well, she likes to leave me notes all time. In my lunch boxes, in my suitcases, in my notebooks. Here's a note I found on my windshield when I got out of work the other night. I don't know what's more cute: the thought of leaving me a note on my car or the fact that her English grammer still needs a little help. Cutiest, mom? No, you're the cutiest! Ha.
