3 in 30
Welcome to the 30 in 30 challenge! Each day this month I'll be posting a response to a prompt. You can find all the questions here. I stole the questions from here. Be sure to check out Carrie's (and send good thoughts her way - a baby girl will be joining her family very soon!) and Sarah's answers!
Describe your relationship with your parents.
My relationship with my father has always been tense, but right now it is probably better than it has been in decades. He's a fantastic granddad to my little man and people who love my boy are on the top of my list. As a child I was definitely a daddy's girl. My dad taught me how to appreciate music, taught me to use chop sticks, and ingrained in me a love of cooking. As a teenager, things were very rough and our relationship was severed while I was in college. As an adult our relationship has continued to be rocky, but it's something I value and work hard to maintain. We are definitely a lot alike and butt heads because of our own stubbornness.
I do not have a relationship with my mom. We haven't spoken since my wedding day, or shortly after.
