It’s a very special day today! And I’m sure all of you have really good Moms, but I have the best Mom ever! Thanks for being the best, Mom!

Look what Karen from Little Miss Priss Designs made for the best-ever-Mom for Mother’s Day! I am PUMPED!

(G.C. is the nickname for my Mom — “Grandma Claire” — although the Bear can’t quite say it yet, we’re confident he’ll get it soon.)

I miss you so much, Mom! And even though we’re travelling all over deepest, darkest South Africa at the moment, I am confident that our wireless modem is going to find a signal for us to talk to you today, and I can’t wait! Thanks for being a one-of-a-kind wonderful, patient, gracious, loving Mom and even supportive of the work that takes me half a world away from you! Can’t wait to see you in August! I love you so much!
