Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo

Salaga-doola, menchika-boola, Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo.

Put them together, and what have you got?

Four of the best women we know.

Here’s what I can tell you about my children’s godmothers:

They understood the commitment they made to our squirmy little babies was lifetime. So, in honor of Mother’s Day, here’s to them!

Here’s to the guidance givers, game goers, trip takers, memory makers, stand sitters.

Here’s to their fashion sense, the sweet cards sent, and secretly slipped cents.

Thank you for the adventures, and the phone calls, and the extra bedroom, and the standing ovations you launched from auditoriums all over the Midwest.

Thanks for loving our kids.

They’ve known their whole lives that, when they need an extra ear or a comfy shoulder or a pat on the back, the thingamabob, that does the job, is “Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo.”

That’s you.
And, please know, that when your wand gets tired and your magic wings need a lift, they’ll be there for you too.

God bless you all.

elaine and Charlie
Charlie’s Aunt Elaine came all the way to Northfield, Minnesota for his college graduation. She’s been a friend and mentor to him his whole life.
Kathy's wedding! 184
I’ll take any occasion I can to post this perfect picture of my sister Jenny and her godson Vinnie. She has opened her heart and her home to him. 
Nancy and Molly
Molly was lucky enough to see her godmother, Nancy, this weekend when she and her family came to Molly’s play.
Kathy and Katherine two pics
This weekend we recreated this picture of Katherine and her godmother Kathy from 1989, for love and good karma. I took the first picture right before Kathy’s first trip to the Mayo Clinic for surgery on her brain. She is having her sixth brain surgery today, a situation she calls “annoying”.  She really is an amazing person.
