I've been using the MOTB (Mother of the Bride) acronym for email exchanges and it occurred to me that I am not your average MOTB because I can use the acronym to stand for Mother Of Two Brides!
When people realize I have, not just one, but 2 weddings, I get the expected "whoa, you must be busy" commentary. And, I suppose we are in the throes of weddings-on-the-brain but these are the kind of life events we live for.
So, Brent and I are delighted to be gaining 2 sharp son-in-laws! They're a welcome addition to the family and we feel blessed!
Now, as the double MOTB, I can't shirk my self-appointed role of giving good marital advice to my girls. Ongoing, unsolicited and completely free! Aren't they so lucky? So, today I'll direct them to a short but clever ditty by American poet Ogden Nash:
"To keep your marriage brimming, with love in the wedding cup, whenever you're wrong, admit it; whenever you're right, shut up."
