OK~ I'm visiting a local convenience store. The gal at the check-out says, "Aren't you Blaine's Mom?" I respond, "Yes, I am." She then says, "I've known Blaine since he was five." Within two minutes, I now know that this young lady is going to go back to school when she has enough money, works full time, and is glad to have known my son for so many years.
I'm thinking...Wow- I recall when Blaine was two (he'll be 21 in about a month) and I was in a local store. Two kids hollered at me, "Hey, there's Blaine's Mom!" More than 15 years later...I'm still hearing that where ever I go! Yes, I do have a name, but that's irrelevant when you become a Mom. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
