Awkward Mom vs. Goodbyes

We here in the Awkward Family are incredibly blessed to know many a Fairy Godperson. (Fairy Godpeople just doesn't have the same ring, does it?) Some bring assistance or understanding. Some bring us laughter and joy. Some bring us candy. But all of them help us through the rocky, rollicking, often ridiculous road that is parenthood. Today one such Fairy Godfather left us. Left us way too soon and left a gigantic hole where his generous and thoughtful presence once was. Luckily for us, since he was (and still is) a rock and roll Fairy Godfather with a fabulous sense of style, he also left us some priceless memories and one impossibly awesome onesie that has been worn by every Super and always manages to make me look like a far cooler Mom than I really am.

Thank you, Rockin' Fairy Godfather. Thank you for wrapping my children in your stylish awesomeness. Thank you for wrapping my children in your love.


  1. He actually mentioned seeing that onesie on your youngest which he had originally bought for your oldest and he was very proud of that.


    1. Marc told me that; it made me smile. And then it made me cry really hard. Henry too.

  2. I'm so sorry for your loss. :( But that is a totally rockin' onesie.
