2. A quote most commonly ascribed to Plato reads-"Necessity is the mother of invention." When did this last play out in your own experience?
3. Share one of the earliest memories you have from childhood.
The earliest memory (I was told it was when I was two) is of traveling across a large bridge while sipping chocolate milk. (Figures it would have food in it.) My earliest memory of my mother is of her kneeling and looking into my eyes and explaining most earnestly that a birthday gift I had been waiting for would certainly arrive soon. It was a set of dishes. Hmmm...I'm sensing a theme here.
4. When did you last 'hit the mother lode'? What was it?
Guess it was when I opened a box over the weekend and so many old photos, some I do not remember seeing before, were in there, including the ones I'm sharing today.
~my mother age 6~
~my parents, baby sister, and I~
6. Mother May I? was at one time a popular children's game. It required no equipment or parts to play. What was your favorite childhood game to play where you could just turn up and play-no gear needed?
I have been waiting for this question because I just taught this game to my grandsons last week. I didn't think that they would enjoy it at all since they balked with the "Mother" from the very start, but now they request a game nearly every day and have become quite creative with their requests and love to play the part of "Mother."
7. Which TV mom (past or present) is your favorite, and why?
