1. Share something you appreciate (or something you appreciated as you were growing up) about your mother.
|Taken in the Spring of 1953 - Momma and me|
I cannot stand to "cop out" on a question but I simply cannot think of the last time. But, my husband is brilliant when it comes to this. He can come up with more ideas of ways to make something work or fix something in the most unconventional way, but it works.
3. Share one of the earliest memories you have from childhood.
I have thought a lot about this one from time to time. My Mom had a little boy when I was 3 years and a few weeks old. I remember being so excited when I was told that he had been born that I went running up and down the street in front of our house singing, "I've got a baby brother, I've got a baby brother." And, funny thing is that I have no other recollection until the 1st grade. Guess getting a baby brother made quite the impression as this little 3 year old girl.
4. When did you last 'hit the mother lode'? What was it?
It was about a month ago when I had a major clothes cleaning out. I took the biggest "mother lode" of clothes to the local consignment shop. I had a happy closet afterwards.
5. What is/was your favorite dish mom made? Do you make that dish for your family/friends now that you're all grown up?
Well, I guess this may sound really tacky, but my Mom was not that great of a cook. She used little to no seasoning and her food was rather bland. I really didn't pay that much attention to that fact until I got married and begin eating my MIL's cooking. She was truly a great cook and used bacon, plenty of salt and whatever else she decided upon to season with and then I realized what I had been missing. ~grin~ I have more cooking habits like my MIL than my Mom.
6. Mother May I? was at one time a popular children's game. It required no equipment or parts to play. What was your favorite childhood game where you could just turn up and play-no gear needed?
Oh, goodness, Joyce is really bringing up some old memories with this questions. I love it! I remember so well loving to play I Spy and Tag, You're It. I wonder if those are ever, ever played by the kids of today. I'm afraid the kids today will have no memories of playing anything but high tech games. What a shame!!!
7. Which TV mom (past or present) is your favorite, and why?
