The Mama To This Blogging Mama


I definitely get my wild and crazy side from my mom. You have to know me
really well and for a long time to even see my crazy side. The other day my Aunt dared my mom to go outside in the snow, in the freezing cold, and take a picture in her swimsuit. And she did it.


And to prove how crazy she really is, she said it was OK to put it on my blog.




Come on- how could I resist? Isn't she just adorable!?

Some people that we know reading this are falling off their chairs right now.

P.S. My Dad took this photo and was laughing the entire time.

My mom used to embarass me when I was growing up because all my friends liked her and wanted her to hang out with us, but I wanted to hang out with my friends
without my mom! I loved my mom, but you know, when you're in middle school, you don't really want your mom in on the slumber party, too.

But now that I am a Mom, well, I see it all differently and I hope I remember that as my boys grow up and might find me embarassing. Sniff sniff.

I am so proud of my Mom and how free she is. When I asked her if I could put this on my blog, she said "Why not? You only live once."

Most of us are blogging Mamas here. I'd love to see your Mom, the Mama to the Mama Blogger. Feel free to post about your mom- whether you are close or not, and it could be an old picture from when you are little or current- whatever. Doesn't have to be crazy or anything. This photo just happens to represent the
life that is in my mom's soul. And remember- I had permission!

Just have fun with it and be sure to link the post with Mr. Linky here! (And watch for next week's photo tag- Lori wants us to start digging out old geeky elementary school photos- heheheh!)

  9. Aww. That is the cutest picture!!! Bathing suit and all. I love that. I think my mom would DIE if I told her I was going to post a picture of her on here. I love that your mom loved the idea. She sounds like a blast!

  11. Aw! Your mom is great!

    I remember all too well how embarassed you were of your mom. We didn't get it! She was so cool! I also remember so well many of our crazy moments. Remember those crazy pictures we took in Michigan? Remember sining "There's a bushel on the side of the road"? And your werewolf hands? :)

  14. OMG I LOVE your mom! My mom is the total opposite which makes me get frustrated b/c I find myself acting the same way. Such a downer! But her, you can't help but smile when you look at her!

    I'll see if I can find anything to go along with this, doubtful

  15. I can't believe this, but I don't have a picture of my mom on any of our computers! That picture of you mom is so cute and funny! She looks great in a bathing suit!

  16. What a great pic! What's so funny is that I find myself doing "Non-Mom things" that when I was younger I always thought "Adults never do that kind of stuff!" I'll have to get a pic of my Mom. I know I have one somewhere. She would be out there too. She's a hoot and such a joy!

    ReplyDelete
  17. First, that is a LOT of snow!
    Second, that makes her very brave AND adorable! How funny!

  18. Stephanie, tell your Momma that that picture is just too adorable!! I love it!

    I like the idea of this photo tag. I've posted a picture of my mom. I look forward to participating in more photo tag! :)

  19. I love Stephanie's mom too. I grew up with Steph and can vouch for the fact that all of us girls wanted mom in on the party! She made the best cheesy roll up things too!

  23. How fun!

    You should enter your mamma into one of those "celebrate moms" contests on Oprah....she would make a great contestant and she'd prolly win a cool vacation or something!

    I linked up!

  33. Totally not mama related, but how does one go about donating to your Buddy Bears cause on your sidebar? Can ya blog all about that one? Or did I miss something in my typical blondeness?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Nope - I just put it on there today! You're just QUICK! I'll blog about it eventually. I think you can donate by clicking on it and it should take you to this link.

    From there you can click on "general team donation" or on any specific walker to the side and donate on their page.

    Thanks for asking!!!

    Steph

    Your mom looks pretty fun!

    ReplyDelete

  37. Wow what a great idea, and your mom sounds wonderful! I have a picture that I was going to post on my blog of my mom and I when we were younger, but I can't do it. The relationship between my mom and I is just too weird.

    ReplyDelete
  38. That is hilarious! Your mom is a hoot!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Wow, she looks awesome! What a fun photo to have forever! Surely this explains volumes of her personality. I remember my friends wanting to hang with my mom too... I will try to remember my feelings too when Liam is at that age.
