A.B.S.O.L.U.T.E.L.Y.

My daughter arrived yesterday for a 3 day visit filled with family stuff, snowboarding and gift giving. She brought her gift for us all the way from California. She carried it on the plane with her. This is a gift for life. A gift of forever. Wanna see what we got? Scroll down. I put the pix a bit lower so I didn't spoil the surprise......

golly, gosh, three really nice, conservative comments.....I expected more from you girls!

I saw a cartoon a few days ago that said.....imagine this for the future...nursing homes filled with old ladies with tattoos and rap music is on the "oldies but goodies" station.

Nothing like being honored with a tattoo to make a mom feel loved. I was just discussing w/ Teen Demon and her friends the other day, that the only acceptable names on tattoos are parent, child, or siblings. TD has a friend, 18, gorgeous, and in love. At least she was last year. The guy is no longer, but his name is still emblazoned in big tacky calligraphy letters across her lower abdomen. Such a shame.

Anyway, you can't go wrong with Mom & Dad, good for her. Go Mom!

Totally AWESOME!!! Now, ask her, did it hurt? I wanna know! And, my daughter Mia just said to me, she is 5 years old mind you...hey...they spelled Mum wrong, lol. I used to have this conversation with my friend Frances. She was from CArmel California..and she was a University English teacher of all things. I reckon you guys have it spelled right...it has to be mom as it is otherwise mOther..what can I say? English is a fickle lanuage, lol.
I'd love to get my kids names done, but I am a woos when it comes to pain!

It's beautimous!
When I was 15 I wanted a tattoo so I got 'MOM' because I thought she wouldn't get mad..I was wrong.

Okay, I must tell you Ro...I am not one for the Too's. Never was even in my wild days, but the important thing is you love it and it is all about her love for you. The message doesn't get any dearer than that. That is very touching. You are blessed beyond belief.

Now, would you PLEASE stop shaking the snow globe up there. I have had it!

Miss Healthypants said...

Hell, at least it's not on her lower back (tramp stamp! :) ).

Mom said...

You're right, no one gave mr a tattoo for Christmas. It is a lovely.

Shammickite said...

WOW! I'm impressed! She went through all that pain and discomfort for you and Steve, what a gal!
May you and your whole family enjoy good health, happiness and companionship throughout 2009.... and always.... hugs!
