Don’t get me wrong I’m thrilled to get an International Women’s Day Tribute from my Son
Not sure how I feel about reading “My mom should’ve been dead in the same sentence as my daughter-in-law’s boobs!” I have a friend who does a photo meme for Heating Up the Capital in the dead of winter to cheer up all those who appreciate a fine male form. That can be a bit much for me as truth be told I’m a PRUDE.. really.
Oh My! Imagine my angst when I saw the headline on Facebook. My son had written a blog post on Kiss Ottawa “My wife’s Boobs Save Lives, and my mom should’ve been dead.”
First thought OMG what have I done now??? (Its a mother thing I think, always worried we are embarrassing our children, in this case adult children)
The I read the post and was so honoured. I’m now feeling like the luckiest mom on the planet. It wasn’t until 2013 that I first spoke about my life story. In preparation for that first public speaking engagement, at W3 the Women Wisdom and Wellness event put on by Dr Nathalie Beauchamp, I found out my son and my daughter had a very different view of me that the one I had imagined. (I thought they viewed me as a whiny sick person)
This tribute on International Women’s Day is amazing and I am so honoured and humbled by his words.. Thrilled about my darling daughter in law Léa who’s the driving force behind First Step Ottawa Fitness. I believe the Rogers Hixon Ontario Human Milk Bank is a brilliant organization.
