Wow, your mommy knit 40 sweaters for Christmas gifts?! (I think my mommy just fainted...) It would take my mommy one year (at least) to knit just ONE sweater! Your mommy is very talented Lorenza. I hope you have a nice weekend!

Your Pal,

P.S. You look very cute in your pink pajamas.

Princess Eva and Brice, the Duke of Destruction said...

Your mom is very talented to knit 40 sweaters.
My Momma says that she may or may not have gray hair but she hasn't seen her real hair color in many years so she can't tell.

My mom say to tell you girls that you can only cover up those white hairs so long, and pretty soon, its all white and nothing to do for it.

Hi Lorenza
That was cool to learn so many things about your mom. We were impressed with quite a few! She has learned English very well - our mum has always wanted a cleaning obsession but sadly has never had one! We also liked the bit about life long dieting - ah yes we have all been there. We were interested that she never wears a dress and you are a dog with so many!
Your mom sounds like someone we would like.
love and kisses
Martha & Bailey xx

Lady Kaos said...

Oh my gosh Lorenza! Your Mom and my Mom are a lot alike! Mom does graphic design, loves food network, cut her hair and hated so she regrew it and will never ever ever ever do it again, only wears make up if she's going to work or something special after for so many years of wearing makeup even if she didn't leave the house just in case someoen stopped by and those are the only ones I can remember.
Have a great weekend!

Sami & Baylee said...

Lorenza your mom sounds like a very nice person! My mom doesn't know any other language then English but brother Dale talks to her in spanish so she knows a few words...

xoxoxo Sami

The Bumpass Hounds said...

Hey Lorenza,
Homer's mom tagged our dad too. Just like your mom, our dad wouldn't do it either so, just like you, we did it for him. It was real hard thinking of 40 interesting things. Listing 40 boring and uninteresting things would have been a lot easier. You did a very good job listing things about your mom.
