What is your favorite memory as a mother?

My favorite memory as a mother just took place this past September. My 24 year old daughter, Jenna, and I took a two week trip together. During the two weeks we drove from Delaware across country and back. We log in almost 8,000 miles and visited 23 states. We had such an amazing time and we able to see amazing places. I will always remember this trip as being 2 full weeks of mother and daughter time.


If you could know the absolute and total truth to one question, what would you ask?

I would like to know that in the future my daughter will be happy.


What is the craziest thing one of your kids has done?

The craziest thing my daughter has ever done was to take a glue stick to the refrigerator. When she was about 4 years old she decided it would be a great idea to rub a glue stick all over the refrigerator so that she could hang up her beautiful art work. Thanks goodness I caught her before the glue dried and was able to wipe the glue off.
