Mom. Mama. Mommy. Mother (no). I don’t mean to hurt anyone’s feelings…that’s just the way it is. She is such a great mom.
MY MOM THE Stay at Home mom
When I was a child, my mom was a stay-at-home mom. When I was in the sixth grade she started taking classes at our local community college. She wanted to be a teacher.
Life got in the way before that, but she decided it was time. She would take a class or two during the day when we were at school and be home by the time we were. She soon became a teacher assistant in a classroom with special needs children.
As a teenager, my mom wasn’t my friend…and that’s a good thing. She supported us, cheered for us, helped us, and but always had high expectations for us.
I knew I could use her as an excuse if I didn’t want to do something, “Oh, I can’t. My mom won’t let me.” She also gave my my favorite gift ever! She wrote a diary of my senior year…without me knowing it. On graduation night, it was sitting on my bed. My whole year…chronicled by her.
my mom the college student
As a college freshman, my mom jumped into the college pool feet first, as well. She transferred into Old Dominion University as a junior to earn her degree in teaching.
my mom the teacher
Two years later, she began her dream job of teaching preschool students with disabilities.
As a new mom, she provided countless hours of guidance and support so I could be a mom like her.
AND…now she’s the best grandmother EVER!
In honor of her, grab this Mother’s Day FREEBIE.
