Hudson, my dad, me & Mam (his mom)
I am so incredibly blessed to be almost 30 (gulp!) and have a Mam (grandma) who is very active, healthy and with it at a young age of 86! Every year she comes and spends about a month with us during the summer and every other year she spends Christmas with us. She was a HUGE help after each of Hudson's surgeries. Helping to entertain him so that I could have a few moments of peace.
Mam & Hudson
This little boy ADORES his Mam more than I could of ever imagined! (He has a pretty special place in her heart too!) Hudson can convince Mam to be baptised a hundred times, build a playhouse, do a flip, play church, hide in a dark closet, build blocks, share her favorite treats, drag her to the boat parade in crazy wind and "take" a nap. I pray that he will always remember these special moments with a very special Mam!

Is she not precious?!?!
I attempt to be the good granddaughter and call her once a week. This week I called and she immediately went into a story that I thought was so Mam that I needed to document it so that I will always remember it!
me: Hey Mam, how are you?
Mam: I'm doing great! I did something crazy today...
me thinking: Oh no, did you go sky diving???
Mam: When I was brushing my teeth today I realized how much I like the new cap on the toothpaste. I looked at the back of the tube and saw an 800 number. It said please call with any concerns or comments and I thought that I should call Colgate and let them know that I like the new cap.
(conversation with the Colgate representative)
Colgate: How can I help you?
Mam: I just wanted to call and let you know that I LOVE the new cap on the toothpaste I use.
Colgate: Well thank you so much!
Mam: Please don't ever change it, I really like it.
Colgate: Thank you so much, I appreciate you calling, I will pass this along.
(back to me)
Mam: The best part Steph was that they sent me a big thing of coupons! I got 2 coupons for free toothpaste and several for 75 cents off!
Oh how I love that lady!! I love that she finds joy in the simple things!
