I also love that she's the type of mom that as a surprise makes my favorite food even when I tell her I *may* be coming over, not am, may.
But most of all (okay not most of all, but most entertaining) I love how she mispronounces words. Maybe this will only be funny to Russian/Eastern European offspring, but I thought I would share. I'll put these words into context and let you decide for yourself.
2. When you get new bedding the set usually comes with sheets, pillow cases, etc. If you get the deluxe set, they come with "sharms".(Shams)
3. My family has done their fair share of DIY. They have installed wooden floors, built a sauna, and finished a basement or two. Till this day, I will never forget my mom asking me to "come hold the shitrock", so they could finish building the sealing. (sheet rock)
5. And finally one of my favs that I've mentioned previously in my Hangnail post. The typical convo goes like this...
Mom: "Have you seen the neeeepers?"
Me: "The what mom?"
Me: "Wait, what?"
To honor my mother on this day, I make fun of her. I'm a terrible child I know. Actually, I love you Mom; your happiness makes me happy! Hopefully this didn't make you cry. That would be terrible of me indeed.
Happy Mom's Day!
