>Today is my mom’s official birthday…or rather, it’s the date that was recorded in the government office of the rural Taiwanese village where she was born. The actual date and time of her birth has not been exactly pinpointed or confirmed, so we consider May 10th to be her birthday.
Some years, Mom’s birthday and Mother’s Day fall on the same day…so it’s really nice to be able to celebrate both occasions with her.
Today’s quick (3 min) sketch is of two Chinese characters for “Mother.”
We celebrated Mom’s birthday with a cheeseburger at Five Guys (her first time trying it…she loved it, but I think she’s still a die-hard In-n-Out fan).
Here’s an adorable picture of her at In-n-Out last year on our way to her departing flight back home to Taiwan.
…And since I didn’t have a chance to photograph one of the kids’ sketches, check out what I discovered in my bedroom today…these boys crack me up!
