Ten Mom Memories

In honor of Mother’s Day, here are ten memories of or with my mom. They aren’t in any particular order because I don’t think I can choose a favorite. These just happen to be my ten favorite today.

  1. Watching her play “motorboat, motorboat” in the water with my kids.
  2. Going to lots and lots of Saturday morning yard sales. One time (as an adult), I went with her in a little two-seater sports car. It was amazing how much stuff we crammed in that car.
  3. Pushing the dishwasher down the street and wearing out the casters.
  4. Re-doing a doll house with leftover paint/wallpaper/carpet we had.
  5. “If he’s gonna wag-it, make him bag it!” as I was walking to open the door for my first car date.
  6. Wet underwear out the car window.
  7. Laughing together when the baby explosive pooped all over me.
  8. Sharing plants from her garden.
  9. Teaching me how to drive a stick shift.
  10. Letting me help file and pull patient charts long before the days of HPPA.

Thanks Mom for all the things you’ve taught me – intentionally and just by example. I am the woman, wife and mother I am today because you put us kids before yourself. I love you Mom!

  1. It is so easy to share these things with people who you love. People who will love you back regardless of what you do or say. I love being your mom and teaching you what I can . Like has to be entertaining and I feel I did my part. Love always and I am glad I was able to provide you with some memoriable moments.
