Miss. Chelsey enter this world on Feb. 12, 1990 at 10:27 pm. I became the mom to a beautiful baby girl who has now become an amazing woman I am proud to call my daughter and best friend. Soon she will go off to College, get married and one day have children of her own. I knew this day would come but it seems like yesterday I was walking her into the school for her first day of Kindergarten. I don't know who was crying harder her or me.
I do at times miss my baby Beans but love the way our relationship has grown from child and mom to Moms close friend. She is not just a pretty face but a woman with a good head on her shoulders that is not only smart but moral, a friend to all, never judges, and can see others pain and tries to make things right. I am so proud that she has been a good example for her younger sibling. Chels, I love you! Happy Birthday!
Now for a funny story:
For Chelsey's birthday I decided to take her and my mom out to breakfast after I dropped off all the kids at school. Chelsey and I picked my mom up and we went to IHOP.
Chelsey decided to ask my mom if she would let her make a profile on a online dating service.
My mom has been single for about 20 years and does not date. She just retired from Kmart this fall and worked there for 35 years. She has a dog named Teddy who is her constant companion. My mom is a religious woman who is still sealed to my dad who pasted away a year ago. Even though they we not married at the time of his death my mom and dad remained very close.
My mom tells Chels "No, what do I need a man for? I have had all the men I ever wanted in my life" This teasing goes back and forth between them until the food arrives and the subject is dropped. After we ate our food and the whole place sang Happy Birthday to Chels we went to Ross to find Chelsey a dress for yet another Sweethearts dance she will be attending at a different school this weekend. Plus she had 3 dates with different young men later that day so this was the only time she had to find a dress.
As we were walking in to the store my mom out of the blue says to Chelsey " Chels, I don't want a man b/c all he will want to do is have sex with me and want me to take care of him" We both just looked at her like what the h**l?! She just walked away to look at a dress for herself with out another word....I thought poor Chelsey was going to die laughing. She looked at me and said mom that's is why I love my grandma.....
3 generations of silly woman at Ross laughing and giggling until they were all in tears. What a wonderful day of fun memories!
