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/

  1. What’s the one thing you would have done differently as a mom?
  2. Why did you choose to be with my father?
  3. In what ways do you think I’m like you?
  4. Which one of us kids did you like the best?
  5. Is there anything you have always wanted to tell me but never have?
  6. Do you think it’s easier or harder to be a mother now than when you were raising our family?
  7. Is there anything you regret not having asked your parents?
  8. What’s the best thing I can do for you right now?
  9. Is there anything that you wish had been different between us — or that you would still like to change?
  10. When did you realize you were no longer a child?

Enjoy!
