I think TM tried to get us to talk about our most unhappy Mothers Days, but we kind of hijacked the thread and just wrote about our expectations of it. I'd like to go with a maybe mostly fun thread, that has pain in if in case it needs to be said, and talk about our very best experiences as a mother and we can talk about our worst experiences too. Good/bad mommy moments Hopefully, good support to all My best mommy days were when Scott ran off the airplane at O'Hare and into my arms and called me "Daddy." Of course, that happy memory is jaded now, but it is still a wonderful memory. When Julie was handed to me by a weary soldier who had held her all the way from Korea and he said, "She's been crying all the way in." But she stopped crying right away when I took her and grinned a big toothless grin and she was mine. When Julie graduated from college (never thought I'd see the day). When Jumper won Prom Queen. No words to describe it. ********* Now the saddest times: When Scott left me, hands down. When Julie pulled a knife on herself and I had to call the cops on her. When I got soooooooooo angry at 35 that I did what I never do and slapped him (he was in high school) and he slapped me back across the face. Not good behavior for either of us.
