My “Momoir” in Honor of Mother’s Day My older son & I, Sanibel Island, Oct 1998 Following on Friday’s post regarding SMITH Magazine’s six-word “momoir” project in honor of Mother’s Day, here’s my own: My kids: toughest taskmasters, greatest joy.

You've captured this one perfectly. 100memoirs.com May 8, 2011 at 5:08 pm You nailed it, Annette. Here's mine: Greatest reward of motherhood? Grandma Shirley! Alexandra Grabbe May 9, 2011 at 1:39 am Here's mine: Adult children can be tough, too. Anjuli May 9, 2011 at 3:23 pm I loved yours- they are the greatest joy, aren't they!?! Motherhood: the ultimate roller coaster ride maggie May 9, 2011 at 4:01 pm Shirley – oh, I love yours! I've heard quite often that the reward for parenthood is being a grandparent, and you really captured that sentiment! I must say I am looking forward to that even though I have a way to go (I hope…) Alexandra – yes! I believe you, and I can see that coming even though my oldest is only fiftee. It just gets more complicated, doesn't it, and you have less control, yet your heart is out there just as much. Anjuli – rollercoaster, I agree! I've thought that many times myself. Isn't it amazing how we all can agree on aspects of motherhood captured in only six words? Comments are closed.
