She would be shocked. Just fully and jaw-droppingly shocked.
Not in a good way, not in a bad way… just “whoa! I didn’t see that coming!”

I’d say: Mama I’m a big girl now

Ok, that was for laughs. Seriously, I would be very proud of me. My life is completely different now. I have made several changes for the better, and I am a much happier person.

I think past me would be pleased to see the condition of my skin, the fact I’ve gone back to college, have progressed at work and still have same taste in music :)
I think she’d also be relieved to see that the big decision she’s about to make is gonna work out OK.

great question. Had to stop for a second and give you a tick for that. I think he would say well done for making a good life for you and the family and GET to the gym. Where is my 32 inch waist gone ?
