Me: Moma, what do you want for Mother’s Day?
Brenda: For you to meet a nice boy to settle down with. And for you to start going to gym.
OKAY, mother. This is pretty much how every conversation goes. Usually followed by 20 questions/comments – Have you been taking vitamins? You need to wake up earlier. Your hair looks frizzy. What kind of shampoo are you using? When is the last time you sat down a made yourself a budget? You have got to stop all this frivolous spending.
God knows I love her and the older I get the more I act like her (so I’ve been told). The woman swears by French-milled soaps and always reminds me that “your neck is part of your face” when going over her skincare routine. She likes to lounge in PJs just as much as I do on the weekends and appreciates a good “pocket book organizer.” She’s always traveling (major bag lady) but when she’s home she’s the queen of the kitchen. I love you, Moma!
