Credit... Me :)
When I was a young bride, even now sometimes, I would call my mom with cooking questions and medical questions, cleaning questions and numerous other things. Most of the cooking questions were simple, I just didn't have the confidence to improvise. (I think it's the Chemistry major coming through.) My mother would drop everything if I was ever too sick to care for myself, Shingles was the one I remember most. She's a great mother and taught me a lot about the "job".
It has come full circle because the other day my youngest daughter called with a cooking question. I don't remember what it was but it made me smile. I believe I actually knew the answer too. She has recently moved into her own apartment and is learning how to cook, and generally be a grown up. It is fun to watch.
She is now sitting with me at my house, healing from having her wisdom teeth out. I went with her to the surgeon and stayed with her until I knew she would be ok.
No matter how old I get I still need my mom and dad. I hope I teach my children to be good moms, and that they continue to come to me when they are moms themselves.
Life is great and I love how the circle continues.
