mothers' day eve...

(the anonymous d with elizabeth katherine)

on the eve of mothers' day, i want to tell you about a wonderful mother, d... yes, there are three of us d's; and those who have read my posts and comments have probably figured that out by now. this d is a lawyer and chooses to remain "anonymous" in the bloggershere, but she exists nonetheless. and, i am soooooooooooo grateful she does.

she is an amazing friend... and
(who would have ever guessed it??? i would have!!! i would have!!!)

she protested for years!!! she would never have kids, she was not cut out for motherhood, and she would make a horrible mother. i knew better, and thank GOD, so did her husband. she said he talked her into it, lol. but, once the ball of motherhood started rolling there was no looking back; she was/is a natural!!!

i was so excited when i found out that d was pregnant 7 years ago that i called too late, awakened her, and asked if i could be her baby's aunt, lol!!!

i've been 'aunt dani' since to this beautiful little girl,
elizabeth katherine!!!

d, who said she wasn't the maternal type... is now a "dance", "soccer", "kumon", etc. "mom". she serves on the site based council of elizabeth katherine's elementary school as well as the children's comittee at church. d, who said she would make a "horrible mother" has turned out to be a


one of whom i am quite envious...

(who would have ever believed it??? i would have!!! i would have!!!)

i love, love, love being right, the anonymous d, and elizabeth katherine:D


love and blessings,
dani xx

Happy mother's day to you and I hope that your Sunday is full of happy family times.

How funny! I just spent my evening with Miss Kate while the Anonymous D and her husband went to a movie.

I was totally shocked when I found out she didn't want to have children. She's pretty good at the whole mom thing... And her "Super Mom-ness" isn't in a scary, Stepford wives kind of way. She's pretty laid back and well, natural at it. (or so it seems!) Kate is one lucky girl. :)

And boy, oh, boy and I glad her husband talked her into motherhood. That sweet babe of theirs makes my heart smile!

dani said...

she makes my heart smile too, caitlin!!! and i'm so happy she has had you in her life. she loves you so:D

dani said...

thank you, elise:D i feel pretty lucky to have the two of them in my life; that's for sure!!!
i hope your day has been a great one. katherine just summoned me into her bedroom so that i can open my mother's day present from her; she is very impatient about these things as it is 12:16 am 15 minutes later than she wanted to celebrate, LOL!!!
after a quick note to kellan, i will answer my summons and have a "sleep-over" with my little kitty kat...
love and hugs,
dani xx

dani said...

i hope you have a wonderful mother's day, too, kellan:D the photos are beautiful; but with subjects like d and kate, how could they not be...

Little Sweethearts said...

Elizabeth Katherine / Katherine Elizabeth / 3D's... just a tiny bit confusing to my sweet little head so early on a Sunday morning. I'm sure I'll figure it out someday, since I just keep coming back to this fun blog of yours!

Happy Mother's day! Mine started out with some ... chocolate of course which made me happy and then my husband leaving for India for a week which leaves me a little sad. But I'm sure my two little sweethearts will keep my mind occupied till he comes back.

Thanks for your sweet comments about me on Sarah Jane's blog.
