Tell Laura I love her

Do you know the song "Tell Laura I love her"?


Daughter 2's name is Laura and she works as an architect with a medium sized firm and therefore sometimes spends time on building sites with lots of joiners and plumbers. Her current project is the conversion of an old building into a hotel. She's a sweetheart. Yes, I know I'm her mother; but she is.

The other week she was on site, and saw that someone had chalked up on a wall, "Tell Laura I love her".

Yesterday she went past the wall again, and there, in two different handwritings, was: "Me too" "Me too".

Your father and me too. We love you, Laura. (More!)

What a nice way to brighten a work day!

Aw, how nice! (Although I must confess I find the actual song a bit creepy!)

Mother - you are so embarrassing! You have caused me to un-lurk (is that what you bloggers call it?) to retaliate. You should know, Mum's bloggy pals, that she is twice as lovely as I'll ever be. She might post pictures of one in one's pajamas on the internet and tell building-site-graffiti stories but Daughter one, Dr. son and I couldn't ask for a more perfect mother. I don't know anyone else with a mum who sent her children to school with little letters in their lunch-boxes to make sure they are amused at playtime, do you? Hope you're all well in blogland - you can stop making me blush now! Daughter 2.

Oh Laura, that is so sweet! As far away as I am Down Under, I can still imagine your Mum just as you describe. It is hardly surprising she has so many blog readers, is it - and not just because of her catlet photos!

Kerri said...

If Laura is anything like her amiable mother (and I suspect she is), then she's certainly every bit as wonderful as you say she is! Who would know better?
Apparently she likes you too :)
She's a lovely lass.

What a fabulous post. I want to come back there right now. As an unbiased observer, I can attest to the fact that both mother and daughter are adorable. The acorn doesn't fall far from the tree!
