Weekend assignment

Weekend Assignment #58: Mothers and Children

Weekend Assignment #58: Post one of your favorite mother/child pictures. This could be a picture of you and your mother (at any age), or a picture of you with your children (again, at any age), or even one of your spouse and kids. But it should be a mother who is important to you personally.

I was going to post a picture of me with my two children when they were small, but looking through my photos, I found this.  Daddy's in it too, as well as my brother and sister (from my dad's first marriage; his first wife died in childbirth).  My mom is holding me, in this battered old picture.

Extra Credit (this is an optional part of the assignment): Share a piece of fun trivia about your mom.

My mom yodeled.  Not particularly well, but she could yodel... and loved to do so.  I remember how it embarrassed me, growing up.

I love your pictures, your father looks so much like my grandfather in his youth with his bib overalls.  He was born and raised in Missouri too, Texas county.  Actually both of my dads parents were from Mo and he was born in Springfield, then the family came to Iowa.  Someday I want to visit Missouri and do some geneaology research.  I have heard how beautiful it is there and you make it sound even better!!!
