Conversations - Between Me and My Mom

1. What's the one thing you would have done differently as a mom?
I could have given you all regular and more milk to drink. Since nothing could be done about this now, I insist that your children get enough milk to drink.
2. What was the secret of your successful marriage with Papa?
Inspite of all our quarrels and arguments, we loved each other very much.
3. In what ways do you think I'm like you? And not like you?
In caring for the siblings you are like me. By looking at what you are doing for me , I sometimes feel I could have done more for my mother. I do not remember shouting at my children so much though you may say I had my shoutings , honestly I do not remember .
4. Which one of us kids did you like the best?
Honestly, I can not say I like any one of you better than the other; if  I weigh you in a balance all of you are the same in your love, your obedience , arguments, and goodness.
5. Is there anything you have always wanted to tell me but never have?
I dont think I have any such thing. if I remember anything surely I will let you know.
6. Do you think it's easier or harder to be a mother now than when you were raising our family?
I think it is harder now, since you have to look into so many things in their lives.
7. Is there anything you regret not having asked your parents?
I feel I could have written down all the preachings of my father.
8. What's the best thing I can do for you right now?
I do not have any special wish... honestly.
9. Is there anything that you wish had been different between us―or that you would still like to change?
As it is the answer is 'no'. If I think about anything I will let you know.
10. When did you realize you were no longer a child?
Only in my sixties. that too I am not sure.

If I had known that you will make it public, I would have been a little more careful in my answers.But I do not know what other answers I could have given.
