squirrely sunday: happy mother’s day

It may be hard to believe, but even narcoleptic squirrels have mothers! My mom is pretty great. She still wanted to bring me home from the hospital, even though I came out too early and looked like a creepy, Roswell-type, alien. She dealt with all my antics through the years, even those crazy teenage years! Here we are amidst all that, sometime after my creepy alien phase, when I looked like a little boy with orangutan hair, when my mom looked like the church lady. (Boy, is she gonna be thrilled I shared that!)

Plus, to keep things squirrely, here is a lovely vintage listing from Etsy! You know you want an adorable ceramic mama squirrel with all her babies. They’re even on a wee leash, much in the way my mother may or may not have had to wrangle me back in the day!

Happy mother’s day to all the moms out there, whether your kids have two legs, four legs, or no legs, whether they have hair, or fur, or scales. I hope it’s a lovely day! xoxox
