This year marked my second "official" Mother's Day. It started off great with a lunch date to see Grammy Pat, who is without a doubt one of my most treasured friends - for many reasons, but mostly because of the way she loves my baby girl. Pat and I met almost 10 years ago, at work - we immediately hit it off. Girlfriend has a wicked sense of humor, and is the one person I can always count on to make me laugh until I pee my pants. She is a special gem, one of those friends that you are lucky to have. When I was pregnant with Sophia, she asked me - "Can I be Aunt Pat", without even hesitating I said "Nah, Sophia has plenty of aunts, but what she doesn't have is a Grammy - you can be Grammy Pat". And since that day she has doted on my little girl, and loved her like her own. She sends her care packages for every single holiday, and literally beams when she is around. SO needless to say we had a great lunch. Sophia was in rare form, so excited (maybe it was the french fries) at one point jumped up and screamed for the whole town to hear "OH MY GOD". Love that kid!
