Mother Rene

These three are the products of "Mother Rene"
Whenever my mom says, "Katelin Ellen"
in that tone we all know...
I answer back with, "Mother Rene??"
Hence the name
Anywho I absolutely

And she is amazing.
Of course I am biased but I do think shes the best mom in the world.
I do hope though that everyone thinks that about their mom.
Everyone deserves to be loved and adored like a mother does.
So my mother is no different. :)
