On the eve of my 40th birthday, a friend observed that my son was unfortunate lucky enough to both have a mother and a girlfriend who are bloggers. “Poor guy has no privacy whatsoever, does he?” my friend reflected.


Did you hear the news? My son Prince William proposed to his long-time girlfriend, Kate Middleton.

Oh wait, wrong news.

On my 40th birthday, my son proposed to his long-time girlfriend (not Kate Middleton) otherwise known as the allergist’s daughter, thus making her his fiance. Soon after, both she and I pretty much ran to the Internet to tell the universe.

I’m going to be a mother-in-law! Let the overbearing begin!

I absolutely love my son and if I’d been able to choose from all the women in the world for him to love, I would not have chosen anyone but the allergist’s daughter. I hope that I’ll make a good mother-in-law (not right away though! No hurry! I’m only 40!)
