YESTERDAY was my (Kasaundra speaking) mom's birthday! So happy belated birthday Mommy! JT and I wish that we could have been there. We called her while we were at the gym that morning. JT says that she told him to throw a snowball at me. I don't believe him.
Funny story about my mom: where to start.....oooh I thought of a good one. So a few years ago (yikes! More like 5!) I was in highschool and attending Young Women's with my ward. My mom ended up being my teacher for that class! One Sunday she was giving a lesson to a group of 16 year old girls that included myself. I don't remember the exact topic--I think it was procrastination or something. Anyways, she was talking about how sometimes she just needs to give herself a good kick in the behind. If you know my mom, you know that she is pretty animated. Well, when she started talking about kicking she raised her leg to do an actual kick in the air. When her leg went up, her shoe flew off! That room full of girls started ducking and screaming!! The shoe flew past our heads, narrowly missing one girl's head, bounced off the wall and almost hit us again on its way to the floor!!! My mom was speechless with surprise and (dare I say it?) amusement!
Good ol' Mommy. Happy Birthday!
