In honor of Mother's Day coming up, who is up for making their avatar a photo of their Mama?

Asked by Jude (32112points) May 6th, 2011

That is my Mom on the right (with her best friend, Nancy, on the left)

My Mom passed away in May of 2007 at the age of 64. She died of Ovarian Cancer. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of her. As far as my family goes, we’re the missing the cog in the wheel. She was the one who kept the family together; kept us close. We have had few serious physical injuries that occurred after my Mom’s death, and ever since all of that happened, our family has fallen apart. I am doing my best to bring everyone together (yes, me, the baby), but, I am not able to fix everything. That is why I have been having a rough last couple of years.

I was born on Mother’s Day, May 14th, 1972. According to her, I was the best Mother’s Day gift that a Mom could ask for.

Tell me (us) more about your Mom.

Another photo (sadly, torn) of my Mom.

No love for the Mamas?

I would be up for doing that. Shall we do it just on Mother’s Day Sunday? From what time to what time?

choreplay's avatar

Im in. My mother raised the last four of eight boys by herself. My mother was a strong woman who had a endless capacity for love.

Jude's avatar

@marinelife Any time after midnight, Saturday, until Sunday midnight (or however long you want to keep it up).

Will do!
—Your mom is beautiful :)

Jude's avatar

Thanks, @lucillelucillelucille . My Pops got lucky!

Hang on, I’m having technical difficulties

Crap @Jude your story so closely resembles my own and we’re the same age. My mom passed away in 2008 and my family has fallen apart and I’m the one trying to convince everyone to at least talk. But I’m the middle child.

I’m up for the avatar challenge.

I don’t think my mom would be too fond of the idea. I wouldn’t feel right without her approval. How about a baby pic of myself instead?

Jude's avatar

@jonsblond Yep, a baby pic’ll do (sounds like baby pickle :))

Seaofclouds's avatar

My mom wouldn’t like it, so nope, I won’t do it. My mom doesn’t really like having her picture taken or put up on display and neither do I, so I wouldn’t do something that I knew she wouldn’t really like.

My mom is a wonderful woman and a great grandmother (well nana) to her grandchildren. She has been there for me when I needed her in many ways. She was tough when necessary, but always loving. She helped me a lot when I was in nursing school (since I was a single mom at the time, she watched my son a lot so I could go to school and work). If it weren’t for her (and her husband), I don’t know if I would have finished nursing school.

I could go on and on…

Okay, I can’t do it. I just answered a cucumber dildo question and felt really awkward with my mother staring at me… You get me as a nekked baby instead.

choreplay's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate smooth as a babies bottom, oh wait it is a babies bottom.

going to go find the cucumber dildo question

oh, I just said that in front of my mother ah, hell she had eight children.

Jude's avatar

All of the Mamas are beautiful!

Yours to Jude

I’ll try to find one. This will be my first mother’s day without my mom.

Jude's avatar

Just talked to my Mom sister (one whom she was the closet to). Made me feel good.

AmWiser's avatar

This is going to take me a while, but I think I’ll have it up by morning.:-)
Great Idea!

choreplay's avatar

This is my second without my mother @chyna

Aethelwine's avatar

I had my mom scan a pic of us when I was a baby. That’s my mom and me at White Sands , New Mexico. =)

_zen_'s avatar

Cute idea. No.

Berserker's avatar

Nice picture. :)
I don’t got pictures of my mom so I can’t do it, and anyways she hates me. :D

Haleth's avatar

Found a real cute one! I’ve said less-than-positive things about my family in a few recent q’s, but there are so many awesome things about them and mother’s day is definitely a time to focus on the positive. I’m in the red dress.

Aethelwine's avatar

@Haleth That is a sweet picture. I love all the smiles. :D

Haleth's avatar

@jonsblond Thanks. That’s such a great picture of you and your mom. It looks like you’re having a lot of fun there. :)

Aethelwine's avatar

@Haleth Thank you.

I want to thank @Jude for the idea too. I’m using the same pic for Facebook and now my mom is liking my posts at 2am in the morning. We are both night owls. lol

chyna's avatar

Ok, this is my mom as a teenager.

tranquilsea's avatar

I’m going to be pretty busy tomorrow so I’ve put mine up now. Here she is with my youngest just after he was born.

Berserker's avatar

Vunessuh adopted me. So I changed my avatar to my new mom! ^^
