Today is my mother's 88th birthday. I am so lucky to still have both of my parents. I will be taking my mom and dad out to lunch, and on Sunday, May 1st we will have a small party at my brothers home with family members for cake and ice cream. Since mom has Alzheimer's too much excitement causes confusion so this years birthday celebration will be scaled down.
So mom won't have to cook tonight, I made a big dish of chicken parmigiana and an apple pie for their dinner.
My mom and dad have 4 children..me and my 3 brothers, 12 grandchildren and 23 great grandchildren. My parents will be celebrating their 65th wedding anniversary in May. If it hadn't been for World War II, they would be celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary.
