Celebrating Moms and Their Awesomeness!

It’s that time of year again where we get to celebrate the most special women in our lives… our MOMS!  I love Mother’s Day and the opportunity I have to let my mom know how much she means to me. I know without a doubt that I wouldn’t be where I am today without my mom’s guidance and direction.  Thank you mom!

Celebrating the joys Motherhood

Moms help shape the lives of their children and touch all around them.  But along with the shaping, may come some unforgettable moments…especially in their kids’ eyes. {WINK}  I think every mom means well, but might not accomplish certain things in the most tactful ways.  LOL! Below are some funny and really embarrassing moments in some of our very own Divas’ lives, delivered by their wonderful moms.  Get ready to smile, chuckle, and laugh out loud with these funny stories!

The Joys of Motherhood

 1- Tara’s Story:  When I was younger, my sweet mom SWORE up and down that if we didn’t make our beds before heading out for the day… she would come to school and take us home. We always thought she was full of it…

Weeeeellllll, she must have been fed up one day because she appeared in the doorway of my 3rd grade classroom… and announced to the WHOLE class that I had to go home because I didn’t make my bed. I was completely mortified! When you are only EIGHT, that is pretty devastating! LOL   …and I’ve made my bed ever since!

2- Catharine’s Stories:

  • My stepmom had high expectations for us to keep our home tidy, but she was loving with a great sense of humor all at the same time. She asked me to clean my room several times, but I kept putting it off to…”socialize.” She kept telling me that one day, if I didn’t do it – everything on my floor would wind up on the front lawn. Sure enough, one day I came home from school to see my teenage under-things scattered all over the green lawn like sprinkles on ice cream. The cherry on top? My pink bra in a tree! LOL!
  • My mom was never without her Polaroid camera. (Yep…it was the 90’s!) It was obnoxious, and probably could be heard from space. She used to come into my class before every major school play/Christmas concert/other big school event and insist on taking my picture…in front of everyone…DURING class. I have dozens of these pictures, and I can’t even bring myself to look at them. I’m beet red in every single one!

3- Shanelle’s HUSBAND’S Story: When he was younger (14 or so) he was sitting at the dinner table when all of the sudden his mom yelled, “What is this?!” while reaching under the table and grabbing his pants… you know the zipper part that sometimes pops up when sitting because they are new and stiff… Juuuusssst a little awkward for a middle school boy, sitting to dinner with him fam!

Celebrating Moms on Mother's Day

4- Cami’s Story:  My mom hated when my siblings and I fought – like ever!  If we did, we had to hold hands and say 3 things nice about the other person while looking at them in the eye.  Oh, we just hated it!  If we kept at it, she had this uncanny ability to make herself laugh to try to get us distracted and forget about our fight.  Honestly, her laughter was usually so infectious that we literally would stop the fighting and join in the laughter.  One time I was utterly furious with my sister.  We unfortunately had to pick up my friends for an event we were going to, and I was just sulking in the back and didn’t even acknowledge that they were in the car with us.  My mom had had enough of my attitude so she started into one of her laughing spells.  My friends had never experienced one of these before, and just kept looking back and forth at each other with questioning looks like, “Is this lady okay? She’s laughing at nothing!” I was mortified, but still too stubborn to change my attitude.  My mom was even more determined to get me to smile and really turned on the laughter…she was driving the car and was hysterically laughing to the point she was crying!  She kept saying “Oh boy, I can barely see the road”, but kept right on laughing.  Soon, my friends were actually voicing their concern and wondering if she was okay.  I kept thinking “Please mom, just stop!  This is so embarrassing!”  But about 20 minutes of this hysterical laughter, the laughter finally broke my stubbornness… I started to smile, and actually joined in on the laughter – my friends thought we were both crazy, but we (my mom especially) got a great ab workout!

5- Julie’s Story: I had a bunch of friends over when  my mom came downstairs and asked if  we were having an orgy.  In her mind she was asking if we were having a big party, but in every teenage mind’s, well…let’s just say awkward!

6- Ferren’s Stories:  I don’t know if my mom ever embarrassed me, but I have definitely embarrassed her!  Here’s a few examples…

  • Even when I was in high school I would dance to the music in grocery stores (and I’m not a good dancer).
  • When she was a sub in my high school I would run up and give her big hugs and call her ‘mommy.’
  • When she became an elementary school teacher I would ‘mission impossible’ my way through the hallways (while singing the theme song).
  • For one April Fools’ Day, I called and told her the cops were bringing me home, her face was pretty priceless when she opened the door – my dad just sat and laughed on the couch for like an hour.

7- Caroline’s Lesson:  My mom never embarrassed me, but taught me a great quote which we lived our lives after…”If something is worth doing, it’s worth doing well.”  Growing up I rolled my eyes at this phrase; however, it definitely instilled a great work ethic in me. I don’t think I could have achieved everything I have in school, work, or life without her incredible guidance and example!

Aren’t all these stories priceless?!  Growing up we tend to roll our eyes and think our mom’s know nothing, but then as we grow older and can look back and reflect, we realize how amazing every single mom is.  Here’s to moms and celebrating their day!  Thanks to all the Divas’ moms and for their prime example to us.  We love you!!!!

  1. My daughter was at that delicate, yet difficult age of 12 and in 7th grade at Middle School. Almost everyday she would come home from school crying because a boy named Jason told her she was ugly. Of course me being her mother, I thought she was beautiful inside and out. Each time this happened, it just made me a little more angry and hurt for my daughter. I am one of those people that never say anything to anyone and had always kept to myself. However, you can do most anything to me, but when you mess with my baby (no matter how old they get) you have crossed the line. My daughter was on the cheerleading squad and I was waiting outside the gym to pick her up after practice. Once again, she came to the car crying. Jason had told her she was ugly again. It just so happens, Jason was on the basketball team and they had practice that same evening. As she sat in the car crying, I saw the boy’s coming out of the gym. I asked her to point out which one was Jason and she did. I told her to stay in the car, I would be back in a minute. I walked right up to that boy and asked him if his name was Jason… He politely said, “yes mam.” I told him who’s mother I was. That is when my “bad mama” side kicked in. I told him that I was tired of my daughter coming home everyday crying because he had told her she was ugly. I told him if he wanted to see ugly he needed to look in the mirror. Meanwhile, other kids were gathering around us listening, but I didn’t notice at the time. I went on to tell him that my daughter was beautiful and one day he was going to look back and think, “Man, I could have had that, but it would be too late.” I went on to tell him that my daughter better not come home one more day crying because of something he had said to her. Did he understand? Was I making myself clear? Poor boy was trembling and stuttering. As he tried to speak he said, “Did she take me serious, I was just joking with her? I am sorry Mrs. Testerman. I said I’m not the one you need to apologize too. I will be keeping my eye on you, do we understand each other young man??? “Yesssss mammm,” he stuttered. I walked off and got in the car to find my daughter hiding in the floor board. The window was down and she had heard everything. She said, “mom, I will never be able to show my face at school again.” I told her not to think a thing about it, that everything would be fine. The next day she came home from school all smiles and said, “thank you Mom!” Jason came up to me at school today and apologized to me and told me how nice I looked. She went on to say that several of the other kids that had witnessed my “conversation” with Jason had told her what a cool Mom she had. All of them did not like him and said he had it coming and how glad that her Mom had stood up to him. He never bothered her again after that. She is now 32 years old with a 1 year old son. She told me she understood more now more than ever why I took care of that situation. No one better ever mess with her baby. lol I would still do it again today, even though she is 32. No matter how old she get’s, she will always be my baby girl.

  2. Here is one that as a child I thought was embarrassing for my mom, but now that I am a mom, I realize it’s truly an embarrassing story about me!

    I was in 1st or 2nd grade, and it was picture day. I was dressed up, hair was done, and boy, was I pretty! Apparently I had been talking back to my mom all morning, and was still being a snot over breakfast, I don’t really remember that part, but I do remember what happened next! All of a sudden she had enough of my attitude, so she picked up my bowl of cereal and dumped it on my head! I was stunned!

    My older sister told me later (as she walked to school, alone) that she could hear my tantrum from outside the house. At the time and as a young child I thought my mom had lost it-but now that I am a mom, I wonder and apologize endlessly about what I little twit I must have been in order to push my mom over the edge like that! I should probably be grateful that dumping some soggy cereal on my head was all she did! My poor mother!

    1. Cami Turner- I look back at my life and wonder how in the world my mom dealt with me sometimes. This story is definitely one of those moments for you! Now that you are grown and have kids of your own, isn’t it a wonder that we survive at all {WINK}. Thanks for sharing your story!

  3. We were at my grandparent’s house out of state for a summer trip, and we were all congregating in my grandma’s kitchen, visiting. Aunts, uncles, cousins, EVERYONE of all ages. Of course, someone started talking about the weather and how excited they were for summer. My mom blurts out, very loudly, how excited she is and how long she’s been waiting for it to get warm so she can pull out and start wearing her thongs again! (She still refers to flip flops as thongs, even after this…) She was SO embarrassed and red in the face! Poor thing!

    1. Cami- This story is awesome, and I love that not only did your mom refer to her flip-flops as thongs, but she was so excited it was super loud for everyone to hear! Classic. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I was a senior in high school. My mom and I were at the mall, with my exchange student and her friend, another exchange student. We were waiting outside the store for them, and mom thought she needed to embarrass me, so she began scratching my scalp to get the dandruff flakes out of my hair! Oh my gosh, I wanted to crawl in a whole and die! I swatted her hand away and she got all mad.

    1. Heidi Rees- wow! Not only did your mom decide to embarrass you, but she did it in a VERY public place AND in front of multiple friends. Great story! I hope you guys can laugh about it now!

  5. Darci Hansen- this story is just awesome! For a mom who wouldn’t be caught dead without being all done up, this had to have been a horrible day for her. I love that you were able to bail her out, give her an encouraging hug, and go on to class. What laughs still await your future over this. Ha! Thanks so much for sharing.
