My Mom Was Here Today And...

My mom was here today and...

What is that you ask? How could my mom be here? She died just over a year ago. No shit! All I know is that my 2 year old walked across the living room a few minutes ago and said, "Maw's here."

"What Boog," I say.

"Maw's here," she says.

"Huh? Who is here?," I say.

"Damaw," she says.

Alright! I am not into games and I know that I am crazy, so that is that, but WTF makes a 2 year old say "MAW" is here, when she was about 15 months old when she died? She knew her, but has had so little time with her that there is no real recollection, so then what? Really, what? So I call a friend, who happens to be home right now and tell her. She said that I should make sure to ask her what "Maw" is saying. I hang up and ask her and this is what I get...

"Where is Maw Boog?," I say.

"EOIURWOEIJF!," she says.

"What?," I ask.

"On her way to Champaign," she replies.

That, for those of you who did and those of you who did not know her is the place my mother always seemed to be heading to! ALWAYS! I had to ask Boog if she was channeling "Maw," because it is like she wanted to make sure I knew it really was her. So, now, any body have any thoughts on this one? I would love to hear it! I am on the brink of insanity and I am pretty sure there is no way back now!



Hello, anyone out there?

BTW, the really strange part is that I was just forwarding a bunch of pics that I had taken of the kids and had decided to send them to some relatives that I don't know, but that my mom used to talk about. I had gotten their email addresses from an email that my uncle sent out. That is precisely when Boog spoke up about "Maw" being here.

Oh wow, what an experience. One of the little kids from my family recognized my grandpa in a picture even though he'd never before met him because Grandpa died 12 years ago. :-(

I hope my mom comes back too but for now I go to her as often as I can.

You know, I have been thinking about her alot lately. Not exactly thinking about her, but seeing her face in my daily life. I just miss her terribly! It makes me happy and sad to think about her hanging around here! I am happy she would want to be here and sad that I can not talk to her! But, I guess, if she is keeping one or more of the kids happy I will not complain!

:) babysitting :)

Do you ever talk to her anyway? Even though it wouldn't be a normal conversation?

When the body wash hit my foot, I sure did!!!!

Other than that, yes. On her birthday, last year, I woke up and told her I missed her terribly, but that we would celebrate for her and carry on the fun of her birthday anyway. I remember her in most things that I do or ways that I live. She is everywhere to me. I believe that we will feel someone everywhere, in our lives, even in their absence, if we truly knew them in their life time. Make sense? If not, the crazy wagon is already on it's way to get me, so why stop now!?!?!
