My mom, the rock star.

26 years ago today, my mom was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Not many people are inducted into the Hall of Fame on the very first day they become a rock star, but my mom was.

Let me back up a bit...

On the day Kaylee was born, at some point after I got my friggin' awesome epidural (Dr. K - I still love you!), I remember telling my mom she was a rock star for getting me into this world without any pain medication.

Seriously. She is.

I also told her I needed to call all the women in my family who birthed children without pain meds (some of them multiple children) - because they were all rock stars.

It was my birthday today. I got the lunch and dinner out at 2 restaurants of my choosing. I got the cake, the cannoli, the cheesecake, the presents and all the attention, but really, we should have had a party for my mom.

All I did that day was pop out and then poop and pee all over everything while I screamed my head off. Seriously - why should that deserve a party? She did all the hard work.

You're my rock star, Mom. I love you. Much more than chocolate, even. Of course. ;)

Your Sera B.


This post is a part of Tuesday's Tribute over at 7 Clown Circus.

Moms that give birth without pain meds ARE rock stars. I'm an old lady compared to you.

Happy Birthday Sera!

Happy Birthday! I didn't even experience labor for that long but I sure am amazed at women who do it drugfree. Great tribute to your Mum :)

Yer Mom said...

Aww, I love you too, Sera B. -- definitely more than chocolate! I am so proud of you. You are an amazing young woman and I love watching you with your own baby now.

I think you are a rock star for getting the epidural. That was a wise decision.

I'm a rock star too then. ;) (but only because I was too scared for an epidural)

Isn't it funny? I found myself kind of 'taking my mom for granted' until I became a mom myself.

Happy Birthday!

Dani said...

Haha! SO true! Why do we get all the attention when that day years ago was the day our mothers worked the hardest. Now they get to continue working hard on that day throwing parties for that child they worked so hard to get in the first place!

Jenners said...

Happy Birthday! And your mom is a rock star!!! But I bet she is happy for you to get recognized on your special day! : )

LOL, good point...moms do all the work on birthdays!

Amy said...

Great tribute. I agree whole heartedly. We have it all wrong, we should party on our kids birthdays.

Very funny post. Sounds like you had a great birthday

Wendy said...

Awww...you're so sweet! Hat's off to you mama!!

I've always felt like moms deserve the party and celebration more than the kids...well, since I've had my own kids anyway!! Happy birthday!
