    I remember my mom getting a big tea party ready for me when I was little – I think I was around 6 or 7 years old. We had sandwiches, jello, cake, soda and everything. The table was full of food and drinks and so pretty. But being naughty little girls we started rocking the table back and forth because it made the jello jiggle.

    Oh dear, the table was not a very stable one and its legs gave way and all the food and drinks crashed to the floor. My mom was so mad. I was sort of in disgrace for a few days, but it made for good storytelling at school and as a Mom myself now, it has become a rather comical example of what a mischievous kid I was when I was young!

    Its a pretty vivid memory – not sure if it is good or bad, but it certainly taught me a lesson.

    Thank you Charlotte – that is a wonderful story and certainly must have made quite a noise and a mess when the table fell down :( !!!

    I remember my Mom trying to bake chocolate chip cookies for my sister and me for the first time. She really was not the greatest cook and did not quite get the instructions. She beat the batter over and over, so it was really smooth but the problem was that it was so overly beaten that the cookies kinda did not rise and ended up as flat blobs on the baking tray all smudged together! She was devastated!

    We didn’t know any better and just cut the layer of “cookies” into squares and ate away. It was only when we went to a friend’s house a few weeks later and were given the best chocolate chip cookies, that we realized how they should really be!

    Mom eventually figured it out. But the look on her face that first time – I will never forget it!!!

    Lovely memory – we are glad your Mom learned how to make chocolate cookies though!

    My mom had always wanted to go on a cruise and we splurged and bought her an Alaskan cruise last year. We took the kids and we all had a great time. August is the best time to go: the views are spectacular and you can get out and about if you want or just stay on the ship.

    Mom loved it – the views, the birds, the wildlife. Seeing her smiles and breathing that clear, cool Alaskan air will always be a fond memory.

    That is a lovely story Clark. Thank you for sharing.

    Laura Says:

    I remember Mom would let us watch TV while eating just once a week – on Sunday evenings. Every other night we had to eat at the table which was probably good because we had conversations. But Sunday nights were special. My brothers and sister loved watching anything that was on – it was such a luxury being able to watch the TV while eating. I don think we cared what we were eating we just loved the casual atmosphere of a TV dinner experience.

    Now that I am a Mom we do the same. I know it is important to eat as a family around the table, and what with all the rushing around with sports and things it is difficult to all be together, but Sunday nights are special. We laugh, chat and eat – it feels like something out of the 1960’s but I relish that time with my kids.

    I remember one year my mom had gotten my 2 sister and myself some jewelry for Christmas and while see was at work we unwrapped it to see what it was and then wrapped it back just like she had it,later in life we told her about it and it hurt her because she was excited to get something we didnt asked for and then we ruined it. Now i feel bad as a mother i would have been hurt also. Sorry mom. Love you for being you.

    Barbara – that is a touching story. Didn’t we all do something mischievous like that as kids? And I am sure you loved the jewelry she had picked out for you. Thank you for sharing.
