Happy 1st Mother’s Day!

Eli with his Momma

Today we are celebrating by getting out of the house for a couple hours. Our neighbors have agreed to watch Eli while we go see Spiderman 3. Kelli really likes comic book movies, she is kind of geeky like that. (Which is just fine with Eli and me.)

Which reminds me of a funny dilemma. What do Kelli and I call each other from now on? I really don’t like the idea of referring to Kelli as “Momma” unless I am referring to her from Eli’s perspective. It just gets confusing sometimes. Kelli is my wife and she is Eli’s Mommy (or Mom or Momma or Mama).

Anyway, happy Mother’s day!

    Happy Mother’s Day Friend! I’m so glad you are going to see spiderman 3. Good for you going out together! We went last week to see Spidey the day we thought that I was in labor. I’m interested to know what you think of it.

    You are a great mom!-and your aunt hannah is right, you look lovely!

    Happy happy happy to all three Lenzes — and of course especially Momma Lenz! (However Nathan resolves his dilemma, I reserve the right to call you “Momma.”) :)

    (And happy MD to you, too, Miracle! I take it from the fact that you’re still commenting on other people’s blogs that you’re still gestating, but I hope you got some special Mother’s Day treatment today nonetheless.)
