This is a once a month blog party. Click on the Dishing it picture and link up. The topic is a Q and A about Moms.
Q: What's the best thing about your mom?
A: She's the most giving person I know.
Mom came to help me out with the twins. I love this picture. She let me know that I could handle twins and a 2 year old. That confidence in me is just what I needed to hear.
Q: What's your relationship with your mom like? (do you just tolerate each other, or is she your best confidant)?
A: I would say somewhere in between. I do respect her advice. Sometimes I just don't take it.
Q: If there is one quality about your mom that you could emulate, what would it be?
A: Her strength. She emigrated to the United States from Austria soon after WWII with no money, no language, and hardly any family/friends. My mom has the ability to turn nothing into something. If there was ever a natural disaster by us I would turn to her because she could handle anything.
Q: Describe the most embarrassing outfit your mom made you wear when you were growing up?
A: matching dresses for me and my 2 sisters.
Q: What's the best advice your mom has ever given you?
A: To work hard and do your best
Q: What's your favorite thing about motherhood?
A: Teaching them and seeing them grow. My kids are starting to leave the nest and I am in awe of the good people they have become.
Q: What's the most difficult?
A: Having enough energy to do all that needs to be done. Basically taking care of myself so that I can give to my family.
