My Relationship with My Parents
I love my parents! My step mom has been my mom since I was about 4 and thanks to her she made sure I grew up knowing what little girls needed. My father is a loving and protective father of course but he has always been a father who provided and we never went without. My mom loves to shop so I of course had the best in clothes and shoes and there was never a dull moment around our house.
The one thing that I wish that my parents had done more of when I was a child was attend more school functions I was in and encouraged me to do more extra activities like sports, choir, or things like that. My parents both work even today and at the same companies they’ve always worked at. They love the country and look forward to every weekend going up to the ranch to get away from the city.
My parents love their granddaughters and would do anything in the world for them. Which makes me love them even more! I have often thought about not having my parents on this earth and every time it takes my breath away. I don’t know how I could live a day without them. I would say that my relationship with my parents is stronger now than when I was a kid, and I look forward to my weekly multiple chats with them and going to see them at the ranch.
I have my dad’s laugh that’s for sure. My dad and I laugh deep in our souls. I mean when we think something is funny you going to know it was funny! We both love the smell of a fire in the woods and we enjoy pulling out the last pack of boudin (which really means there are a lot left but he always says “yeah, I think I got one pack left ha-ha) and eat it out by the fire.
My mom is the best cook I know besides me. She can cook and bake all kids of things. Every year for Christmas she bakes all kinds of candies, fudges, and yummy goodness. She also makes some really good country breakfast and dinners. I mean those kind that leave you full as a tick and begging for more. My favorite meal that my mom makes is meat loaf, homemade scallop potatoes, fresh green beans, and corn on the cob. I mean my mouth is watering just telling you about it. I enjoy learning her cooking tips and having our kitchen chit chats.
I sure pray that my girls look forward to coming and cooking with me or spending time out by the fire in the winter time telling stories like I do with my dad.
