Friday Five: A Guest Post for Mother’s Day

Every Friday I’ll indulge my order-crazed brain in a list of randomness. Welcome to my Friday Fives.

So far, it’s just been me cranking out these posts, but today I gladly hand over the reigns to a very capable young lady. Ladies and Gents, I give you my first guest blogger…Lily.

This all started a few days ago when I called Lily before bedtime.  Here’s how it went down:

Lily: Hi, NoNo

Me: Hey, Lil’. Am I on speaker phone?

Lily: Yep.

Me: Can your mom hear me?

Lily: Yep.

Me: Turn the speaker phone off, or go where she can’t hear me.

Lily: Okay! <<insert crazed running down the hall and a door shutting>> Now you’re on speaker phone in my room, but she can’t hear you.

Me: Perfect. How would you like to help write a blog post for your mom?

Lily: Okay! What do I need to do?

Me: Tell me the top five things you love about her.

Lily: Oh….easy!

5. She’s sweet. I mean, like, really sweet.

Lily: How many do I have left?

Me: That was one, so you have four left.

4. She helps me

3. She really, really, really, really…wait a minute….really, really reads books to me.

2. She helps me color

Me: Yeah, she’s a really good colorer, isn’t she?

Lily: Yeah, she is…but so am I! (haha!)

Me: I know you are, I have your artwork all over my house! So, what’s the number one thing you love about your mom??

1. I like it that she loves me.


Well said. Everyone would be lucky to be a Booh Baby.

Here’s to all of the mothers out there, fighting the good fight, passing up on sleep and sanity to be the best they can possibly be. You have my amazement, appreciation and adoration.

Today’s blog post comes from Lily

IMG_9841 Lily is a sassy six-year-old, an amazing big sister, smarter than most and loved by all.

She likes to swim, read, play with her baby brother and shoot guns like a boss.


Above sentiments also shared by brother, Linc:

Love this family!

  1. Hooray for Lily! I know and love her and her  Mother  and her Grandmother and if I weren’t her  great grandmother I could say “It runs in the family”. Good work, all and thank you Marci! Love,   M M
