So occasionally, I blog about places I visit because I love documenting vacations with photos. Sometimes, those places happen to be home.
For Mother’s Day, my husband and I went to visit my parents in cozy Fayetteville, NC. I pretty much adore my parents and think they get cuter with each passing day. (It’s true, they do.) This was a special Mother’s Day because we’re looking forward to the birth of the newest member of our family. I guess I don’t technically get to be mother myself until the birth of my baby, but I’d argue I’m halfway there. Here’s a recent favorite picture of my mom with her Panther’s gear:
A while ago, I found an article on the internet with list of questions that they suggest asking your mom. I sent it to her, just for fun. However, she surprised me with her answers as a Mother’s Day gift this year!
I’m not going to share the answers because that’s somewhat private stuff but I think the questions are worth passing on. You can find the original article here: http://parenting.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/05/06/questions-we-should-all-ask-mom/
- What’s the one thing you would have done differently as a mom?
- Why did you choose to be with my father?
- In what ways do you think I’m like you?
- Which one of us kids did you like the best?
- Is there anything you have always wanted to tell me but never have?
- Do you think it’s easier or harder to be a mother now than when you were raising our family?
- Is there anything you regret not having asked your parents?
- What’s the best thing I can do for you right now?
- Is there anything that you wish had been different between us — or that you would still like to change?
- When did you realize you were no longer a child?
