Happy Mother's Day Weekend (My Three Kids)

I've been looking through old slides (I used to love taking slide photographs with a 35mm camera in the 70's) and came across this adorable photo of my three kids when they were very young. This photo is from 1976. I had sent a copy of this particular photo to Dennis in California when he worked for the Wagners. He told me he had showed it to Natalie and she commented on what an adorable photo it is. Dennis and I always stayed in touch while he worked for the Wagners, and I remember him telling me that if I brought the kids to L.A., we could all make a trip to Knotts Berry Farm along with Natalie's daughters. I wish I had made that trip but I never did.

From left to right: Billy (7), Jeannine (almost 2), and Matt (almost 4). They are all older now with children of their own.  I am so grateful that I have had my life to grow with them, enjoy them, and to be a part of their childrens' lives. That is something Natalie Wood was robbed of. No one deserves to be robbed of the opportunity to grow with and to enjoy your children.

To ALL mothers out there, I wish you a wonderful Mother's Day weekend... Yes, it's a WEEKEND...you shouldn't be cooking from today until Monday :-) 

Enjoy family....even Natalie Wood knew it's the most important thing in life!


  1. Happy Mother's Day to you, Marti, and to all of the Moms out there.

    Your children are beautiful!

    I hope Natalie's daughters think about their Mom on Sunday, maybe bring her flowers. She's very much alone, thanks to Robert Wagner.

  2. Beautiful family Marti and your so right, Wagner stoled from Natalie that can never be given back.
    Have a wonderful Mothers day, I don't know what my four legged kids are doing for me, more then likely nothing good ...hehehe. Thanks for sharing always. Pam

  3. Thanks, Roz, I hope they visit her at least occasionally.

    Pam. My four-legged "child" I had for 17 years up until Aug of '09, was truly one of the greatest joys in my life, a little miniture daschund....she NEVER talked backed and loved me unconditionally. But, she left far too many accidental "presents" in her lifetime (lol) but I will always miss her! I just dog-sat my son's Austrailian Shepherd for a week and he's about 10 now, but still plays frisbee with the gusto of a pup. What a great dog!
