This post is dedicated to my wonderful mother, who left this earth on January 11, 2008, after a very long battle with two forms of cancer.

On this day in 1939 my beautiful mother was born, the last child of seven, to a farmer and his ailing wife. She spent the first 30 years of her life in Minnesota, where she married and gave birth to 2 children. In 1969 she moved with her family to Placerville, California, where she spent her remaining 39 years.

She was my friend, my confidante and so much more. And, because I think this kid is just too darn cute, I’m posting another video from Kid President in honor of my mother and all of my friends who have known the joys of motherhood. I hope you enjoy.

Happy birthday, mom. I love you and miss you so very much. My life was profoundly changed with your passing. You shall never be forgotten.

Word of the day:  Ovolo

Fun fact about me:  I like pickles on my tacos.
