Karen and Jean were visiting us last weekend. Karen was working her magic in the kitchen and using our oven mitts to take veggies off the bbq. I was startled when I noticed her wearing the oven mitts and at first unsure why I felt my heart skip a beat seeing her wear them. They were amm’s. But Nick and I use them all the time. Arrine even puts them on now and then. Seeing someone wear them never affected me before. But now I think it was because I saw a real mom wearing them. I know that I am a mom now. But Karen is a mom mom. Ya know? It was nice to see.
