I’m back again this week (a little late) with the May is for Moms series. Since I have an amazing mother and mother-in-law, I decided to ask them both these questions. Obviously, my mother-in-law is answering in regards to my husband, Daniel.
My mom & I
Daniel's Mom & I
They're both beautiful, aren't they?
How did you feel the moment you found out you were pregnant with me?
My Mom: Very excited
Daniel’s Mom: very happy-finally
Was I a wonderful surprise or carefully planned?
My Mom: carefully planned
Daniel’s Mom: planned for a long while
What was the most challenging time in my childhood? Why?
My Mom: Middle & High School - you challenged and debated just about EVERYTHING
Daniel’s Mom: Second year; a lot of ear infections, problems breathing when sleeping due to enlarged adenoids
Did you worry more about me as a child or now that I am an adult?
My Mom: as a child
Daniel’s Mom: Worried more as a child; pretty fearless
What is one thing that you thought was deeply important when I was a baby that you now realize did not matter at all?
My Mom: I can't recall anything, as I wasn't passionately intense or much of a worrier, as your dad did enough to that for the both of us.
Daniel’s Mom: hitting the milestones, walking, talking, etc. He accomplished all of these things in his own time
