Thursday Thirteen #12


Thirteen things about Mamacita!
In honor of Mother's Day!
  1. She is the youngest of 8 kids.
  2. She is the only one of her siblings who moved from their home state of Minnesota. That's my Father's fault. She came out to CA because her brother was in the Navy and very ill.
  3. She use to play the accordion!
  4. She cannot hold a tune. In school when in choir they use to tell her, "Anne Marie, you just mouth the words". She laughs about it.
  5. She has beautiful hands and nails.
  6. She is one of those people who you meet and end up telling her your whole life story. A fact that I tease her about.
  7. She hates to fly. But she's better about it and does it anyway.
  8. She has a quirky sense of humor. I guess that's where I got it.
  9. She cannot smell. She lost the ability to smell after a sinus infection.
  10. She won a car on Let's Make a Deal and got to kiss Monty Hall!
  11. She can speak a version of English/German. Her mother spoke German and she grew up speaking like this.
  12. She's a very good and loving Mother. She's dedicated and loyal. And she is loved much by Mitchypoo and Gary.
Happy Mother's Day to all you Mom's out there!

I hope you sent her the link. I'm so going to steal this meme from you to use as a mother's day tribute for my mom. These are the kinds of things everyone should say and never do.

Wonderful tribute to your Mamacita for Mother's Day. :) Cool that she speaks a version of English/German. My human grandparents on my mom's side speak "Franglais" - a combination of French and English!
