Mother's Day Flashback

A year or two after my daughter was born, on Mother's Day, a few of our friends and family got a big surprise on their front doorstep.  On the front page of the Honolulu Advertiser was a photo of me holding my baby girl.  First, it was a big surprise because I had moved away a year or two before my daughter was born.  Second, it wasn't just on the page but also on the color cover of the Mother's Day Special insert.  It was a nice surprise especially for my own mother.

(I have a history of not telling anyone when I or my family will be in publications, ads, or any media... I like having the surprised sound when they call me up to tell me when I or my family pop up in somthing they saw.)

Since then, that photo and others have popped up not only in Hawaii but in dfferent spots around the USA in calendars, real estate ads, special family events displays/ads, including the backs of a number of San Francisco city buses.

However, this was the first:

 

It's my baby girl and I.  She and her baby brother still make me smile, even when they make a mess or destroy things.  I always used to say I would never have kids.  Now, I can't imagine the person I would be without them.

I love my little monsters.
