Writer's Workshop




Mama Kat had some really good prompts this week so I had to take advantage and participate. It's been a couple weeks, I think, since I last joined in so I thought it was a good time to join in again.

This week I've decided to go with #1: Interview my mom.

And so I did!

Since I didn't feel like thinking, I thought Mama Kat's questions were just well enough, so I asked away.

Interview with my Mom

Question #1: How has motherhood changed you?
Mom: To be more loving and caring. I couldn't be without my kids. I'd be lost.

Question #2: What ages were your favorites?

Mom: I loved you guys when you were babies and when you were young teenagers, around 11-15 yrs old. It was always so much fun around Halloween getting you guys dressed up.

**Side note: Notice?! Teeeeenager years!! What parent says that? Mine! And why? Because I was a great kid, don't forget that!!!!**

Question #3: Do you miss having kids in the house?

Mom: Yeah!

Me: I then said "Cause I'm the greatest" and my mom replies "Ha ha, funny!"**

Question #4: What was the most difficult part of being a mom for you?

Mom: *silence* When you wouldn't listen to me.

Me: Which wasn't often!

Mom: No, it wasn't.

**Side note: SEE??!!! I WAS the greatest kid. Hey, don't blame me! ;O) **

Question 5: What was the most rewarding?

Mom: How you kids turned out.

Question 6: What is your favorite memory?

Mom: ha ha ha When you and Diane & I were having a good time in the living room and dad (she called my dad, "Dad" to me) yelled at us to shut up and we all got quiet. (yes, that was a funny moment!) and then when we (me, my mom, Diane and Wendy) would go to Clear Lake.

Me: Yeah, I miss those times.

Now, go head over to Mama Kat's and see what everyone else is writing about.

Teenage years can be the best if you have kids who respect you and don't give you a hard time. I was a good kid too! I would have chosen this prompt too if I could but my mom died in 1999. Here's the link to my post for this workshop: http://zemeks.blogspot.com/2009/10/letter-to-mom-because-i-cant-write.html
