Mother's Day

For Mother's Day, I was inspired by an article featured in May's Real Simple. In it they suggested 10 questions to ask your mother... Some of the questions included:

01. What's the one thing you would have done differently as a mom?
02. Why did you choose to be with Dad? (Loved this question!)
03. Which one of us kids do you like the best? (Luckily, my mom wasn't too specific...)
04. Is there anything you have wanted to tell us kids but never have?
05. Do you think it's easier or harder to be a mother now than when you were raising our family?
06. When did you realize you were no longer a child?
07. What's the best thing your kids can do for you right now?

My mom was kind enough to oblige to this project, so she answered the above questions, and let me take some photos of her. I then compiled the questions/photos and gave them to my siblings.

I loved the answers my mom gave... I had to blog about this, as I highly suggest asking your own mother these questions- it's such a sweet keepsake.

(Thanks again mom!)

I guess I am a little late for mothers day but these questions are great for anytime of the year! I can't wait to ask my mom these questions!
