Did you know that Cicero was the first suburb of Chicago? True statement!
Anyway, back to dear old moms. There are certain family dynamics that always seem to pit us against each other but now I try to avoid such things whenever possible. In the past couple of years, my mom has lost her two sisters and her best-friend--her mom. Losses that I cannot even fathom experiencing and do not want to for a long time. My mom has become more nurturing, loving, and laughs even more now.
