Best Mom Memories

Share Your Favorite Memory With Your Mother

She was there with a hug after every spill and filled you with advice before sending you off into the world. As moms, we are chief boo-boo healers and lunch-makers. We are also daughters filled with memories of our special moments of our own moms. Here are my top five memories with my mother:

  1. She was at the end of the lane when I swam my first lap across the pool.
  2. Standing in her bedroom as we tried on her beautifully hand-sewn Halloween costumes each October.
  3. The special mother-daughter shopping trips we took and then hid our goods in the trunk until dad was fast asleep.
  4. The sound in her voice when I called to tell her I was engaged (my father hadn't told her that my now husband had called a few days earlier).
  5. When I handed her my first child to hold an hour after he was born.

1. My mom, sister and I once got lost for at least two hours while on girls road trip (this was pre-GPS and cell phones, obviously). I was young, but I remember cracking up with her, and knowing she was nervous, but would find our way back to the road. Thankfully, she did. 2. A lot of my best mom memories surround the routine events she made really fun: back to school shopping, making treats for school bake sales together and me recapping my day to her everyday after school. 3. It's hard to pick just a few — she's the best!
