My mamasita! I know, I'm a day late, but there were technical difficulties with the interview. Anyway, she's still the best. She always kinda had a hard time with me, the weirdee of the family, and the one who made fun of the cheerleaders whena ll the rest WERE cheerleaders. The one who didn't like going to the malls and wearing the cute clothes, the one who wasn't interested in boys til her senior year (you should be grateful for that one ma!). But now that I've somewhat grown out of some of the extreme weirdness, I think we're closer than we've ever been and I LOVE IT! She's awesome, and she's taught me so much about everything! Seriously to this day I call at least twice a week with the ole, "ma, how do I_________?" Today it was a sewing machine question. I worked on the thing for an hour and she came over and had it fixed in 2 seconds. Genius I tell you! And the kids LOVE Grandma! Anytime we set foot out of the house they ask, "are we going to grandma and grandpa's?" We're going to miss them when they move. Anyhow.... A mom of 5 girls....AMAZING! Seriously I have the hardest time with my one little attitude, I couldn't imagine 4 (I was perfect) She does a great job!
And look at the hot mama here. I think this was taken when she was about 40, give or take. HOT! And of coarse, below, Boss loves "dad"....that's what he calls most everyone, but he screams it when he sees her.

Great job on doing the Barbara Walters. I learned very little, but thats probably because Im her favorite daughter and I already knew it all. Its OK, that Im her favorite right? I have known her an extra 13 or 14 years though.

No, we all know that only the BEST kind of mom doesnt choose favorites. (Shayna is just alot sweeter to me than the rest)

Allred's said...

okay, so why do you have to be so cool all the time? I can barely find time to do jack squat and you have your camera in your holster and a whole list of questions right in your back pocket, and you kinda look like a million different celebrities. So in a way I would say their is deffinitly a small degree of jealousy, but in another way it's just complete admiration for your ultimate coolness. I really do hope someday I will have your level of shizzness in my bizzness.

Obnoxious! We all know Tamee is her favorite. You knew she wanted to be a model?! Why did she NEVER tell me this when she knew I wanted to go into make up design for models?! I've always known I'm not ma's favorite, but who's got pa wrapped around the finger?

Unknown said...

Thats why mom and dad are soooo great. They make us all feel like their favorites, just in different ways. If they did choose just one, that would be sad - Ive finally understood that after having my kids grow up a little and see that you cant show one kid more love than another. My realationship with each is different because of their personalities though. I hope they all feel like their my favorite in different ways. (It is fun teasing about being the favorite or most unfavorite, depending on the day)

kristal said...

yea, it is great that they don't have favorites. I have for the past couple of days though. Ha! My older two are being gladiators this week! i should be blogging about it.

Tamee said...

Say whatever makes the two of you feel better, you both know that I'm mom's and dad favorite. But they still like the rest of you all. Kristal, I love this. I'm copying it. How funny! I wish you had it videod. Well done, sis!

kristal said...

I'm with Von, I think it's just like parenting little kids...well all have "our days". I wish we had it videoed too. She was pretty funny, pretty stern about the "NO" for Pets? Sad huh? Poor Shib.

j&krosser said...

Yea, the no on pets surprised me. Oh but I liked the Paula Deen answer- could you just see those two together?-hilarious.

Alona said...

Cute interview. I've enjoyed the sibling banter on this comments page as well! :)

Miken Harding said...

So fun. I have to second that you've got the best mom. Well my mom's the best too, you get the point. Love the newest pic of your mom and dad. Turned out great!
