My mum is memorable,
I recently learnt I'm expecting, she just moved to Adelaide, and will be coming home to Sydney for my CVS and other appointments!

Her ability to maintain even-temperment during my childhood/adulthood emotions and displays. Mum, that's memorable and reliable!

She's full of old world charm, blushes at the slightest thing, and is a real lady....so naive that we have to explain 'naughty' jokes to her!
Posted 23 April 2012 - 10:14 PM
She's a straight shooter, always calling a spade a spade. So you always know where you stand with her, like it or not! So many memorable moments surround my dear Mother.

My mum took me in with a young baby when I was only 19 years old until I could find somewhere to live. She still helps me out now. What a memorable, selfless mother!!

My Mum is memorable for her caring nature. There were a lot of ups and downs but she was always there in times of need.
Posted 26 April 2012 - 12:33 PM
I will always remember all the help my mum gave me in growing up- she used to always type my assignments for me (I used to hand write them), drive me around so that I could have a job as a Homecare Catalogue distributor, and when my marriage broke down and I needed to make the drive from NSW to QLD to live with them she was on a plane that afternoon to be in the car with me as I drove, no questions asked.
Posted 27 April 2012 - 12:14 PM
I remember my mum every day; her smile, her hugs, her love and that's why I treat my boys the same way every day.
Posted 27 April 2012 - 12:22 PM
My mum is a rock. She cared for my sister when she was sick with leukaemia for several years and even now, 5 years after my sister's death, she is still so strong. She doesn't think she is but she is the strongest, most caring person I know and I couldn't be without her
Posted 27 April 2012 - 08:38 PM
She is always there for us no matter what we do. She lets us make our own mistakes and never says 'I told you so'. We always have a shoulder to cry/lean on any time of the day or night.
Posted 28 April 2012 - 10:54 PM
The answer being...SHE IS AWESOME!!!!!! No words can describe my mum...but i can say she is 100% mine LOL..and i love her
Posted 29 April 2012 - 07:06 PM
She has an incredible aura that attracts everyone - her smile is inviting, her laughter infectious - she's a hit with everybody, they fall in love!
Posted 29 April 2012 - 09:30 PM
She is a whirlwind of bad jokes, skeptical eyebrow raises and amazing advise. It takes just a cup of coffee and conversation to fix everything.
Posted 29 April 2012 - 10:40 PM
Because she has the most amazing attitude to life. Life isn't always a party, but whatever, wherever, she always take the party with her.
