Congraduation!



This is my mom.


She is very pretty.


She is very smart.


She borned all 5 of her kids and she also loves anything with chocolate and peanut butter.


She also loves me.


She loves me more than she loves any other child she borned. I know because she tells me this every time I see her.


It's science really.


The proof is right here in my brother's face, total jealousy.




Speaking of science...

My mom just graduated! But not in science. She graduated with a Bachelors in Health Service Administration (Or something like that).

Yep, my Mom The Graduate. I am so proud of her, this was no easy task to accomplish. It's hard to go back to school after not setting foot in one after 60 years!




Not only did she work and do an internship while going to school, but she also had to take care of my baby sis Alyse! That right there is a full time job. A full time job with no pay. Don't deny it Alyse, we all know that you are the problem child in this family.

It's science really.




Growing up my mom engrained in me how important it was to get a college education. She did not finish college when she was younger and it was her biggest regret. She was the main reason why I went to college and she inspired me to be independent. I love my mom.

And look at her now!




I think this picture is kinda funny. The guy is squirting hand sanitizer into her hands after she had finished shaking hands with everyone. You can't risk the swine flew at graduation ya know!

So here's to you mom! A big tootildoo and wootipoo to you! I have no idea where that came from. I apologize. I'm just so proud of my mama!



And maybe a little hyped up on caffeine.

Oh my goodness - that is just the most freaking awesomest thing I have ever seen!!! Totally high-fiving your mom!!!

How many people want to go back to school & put it off because they think its too late - what an inspiration! You all had to be so proud!!!

The hand sanitizer is funny! If I was the ones who had to shake all the graduates hands - I'd have someone at the beginning of the line!!! :) If I'm high-fiving your mom, I better get my own hand sanitizer ready!!!

LadyStyx said...

Congrats Pooba's Mom!!

nikkicrumpet said...

Hmmmm I'm trying to do the math....and if your mom hasn't been in a school in 60 years...and I'm assuming she graduated from highschool....then that would make her about 78ish. Since I'm pretty dang sure she isn't that old....then I'm pretty dang sure you are NO LONGER her favorite!!!!

Yaya said...

Yay Pooba's Mommy!!!!!

Jennifer Paganelli said...

Congrats to your mom how cool is that!!
