  • My parents were devorced but lived within 30 min of each other. The thing I remember most about my dad is how he will still to this day give up something that he needs so i have something. When my husband and I got into some money trouble because we had to move my dad sent me 200 for food when i asked for only 50 because we were going to be paid in less then 1 week. With my mom the thing I remember most is how she always wanted us to have the best of the best. She had more of the money to spend but we didnt get everything either. But what we did get was super nice.

  • raised by a single mom.....I remember my mom being a lazy, PA abusing, drugged out, abusive bitch. that motivated me to NOT do ANYTHING like she did. I am proud to say that I am a freaking WONDERFUL mother to my DD.
