My mom is....different.

I could tell so much about her

but it'll take more than one post...

Got to share this though....

My brother and I went to Arizona 4 years ago for a visit.

I hadn't seen her for 12 years.

First thing she said to me?



I was always skinny...till I hit 50 and the big M came to call.

Settles in funny places, huh:)

But even though I'm not skinny minnie anymore

I didn't think 130 lbs was so bad...

Course, my mom isn't much over 5' and maybe 105 lbs

Anyway, I sent mom a few new summer somethings to wear last week.

She hasn't been anywhere since I saw her....really.

So I figured if I sent something she didn't like,

she could go exchange it for something she did like.

You know...she'd HAVE to go somewhere.

I thought it was a good idea...

So she calls me yesterday

Asks why I sent small size clothes.

Well mom, cause you're a small woman.

No Vicki, I've gained weight.

I look like I'm pregnant.

I'm FAT.

But not as fat as you are.....

So send large sizes.

Did I say my mom is different ?

Gotta love her:)

Oh, and send her some bigger clothes....

Don't try to be someone else,
everybody's already taken...

Sounds like your mom is my mom's youngest sister. My mother had ways of sugar coating her comments but she had a need to say them, I guess.

I think she is related to my Grandmother with NO filter!!!!!
What a hoot she is.
Oh, this made my day. :)

It's probably easier to love her, at a distance though. Heh, heh, heh...

I'm sure my kids would say the same thing, about me... BTW!!!

Did you send her something I might like? Tell your mom to send them to me, I'm still small.

Please keep in mind how old she is. you may be that age someday and we already know your different, can't imagine how much different you can get......
