Thanks to my mom I am only 5 ft 6, I need glasses and I have a gap in my teeth. Thinking about what my mother gave me is hard because I have two moms. No, my moms aren’t gay, my parents go a divorce when I was two or three and my dad re-married.
My birth mother gave me my looks and sometimes crazy desires to do wild things without thinking them through. (I don’t have these urges very often especially now that I’m married and have my own children). When I was in high school and in college I would just drive to some destination with my best friend sitting beside me and we would go have some fun. Once we ended up in New Orleans, another time we were in Deep Elem.
My stepmom (I hate that word it has such a negative connotation to it.) gave me my motherly instincts and strength. I learned from her how to run a house. Women really are the ones that take care of the kids, keep the budget, and serve the meals. We do it all.
