This is my Momma.


This is my momma (and my crazy dad who is always doing something of this nature in pictures, and my brother who creepily reminds me of Justin Bieber).momgirliesDorothy Charlotte Kroes (on the left).

She is more commonly referred to as Charlotte, some of her friends call her Char, sometimes I call her Charlie but mostly I just call her mom.

She waited to start her family until much later than most back in the day (ha). First going to school and building a career for herself in the fashion industry. She worked for Tip Top Tailors in Toronto. I don’t know a whole lot about her job there, but I do know that she did a lot of styling for them. At the height of her career she was jetsetting all over the city styling models for gr 10 1978 42 Somewhere during this time she met this crazy guy, my dad. Although, she did tell me one time that before she met my dad she began preparing herself to be single for the rest of her life. Thank God my dad came along when he did and Mom didn’t join a convent or something – because then you wouldn’t be reading this post. lol. rents Then somewhere along the way we happened.

She makes the best desserts – even though she is sometimes confused about how to distinguish between desert and dessert. She is funny and goofy (especially when she is with her brother and sister) and she has the best laugh. There are times when she’ll get laughing so hard that she can’t breathe and she starts crying and anyone who is in the room with her will be laughing too because her laugh is so infectious and they literally cannot help themselves. She loves to decorate our house for all the holidays, and has a special place in her heart for Christmas decorations (there are boxes of them).

People often say we look alike, although I don’t necessarily see it.  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
