Well, because she had me, of course!
And because once I got divorced, I realized that she's about the smartest woman on the planet. The woman who previously didn't know squat, suddenly knew *everything*. Too bad it took me until I was 23 to figure it out.
She's also an amazing businesswoman (who's got a pretty good business partner, too). If you don't believe me, just visit the lodge.
She has corrupted me, though. When I was hemming and hawing about whether or not I could afford to buy Estes, do you know what she told me? "A horse is cheaper than therapy." Here I was, trying to be responsible about money and all, and she's encouraging me to buy a horse?! Yup, that's my mom.
Jeez, I thought this list was going to be easy to write. I was wrong! There are just so many reasons why my mommy's better than your mommy. I'll leave you with just one more:
She's a great trail riding partner (and she gets it when all I can talk about is my horse - the one she encouraged me to buy).
