Question #8: What do you think mom does while you are at school? What do you think dad does?
Aha! An easy one!
Yes. I am not in school. And yes, both my parents are dead. BUT...I will simply answer this from back when I was at school...and mom and dad were busy with their day...
Mom. She was raising my younger sisters and brother. She would finish feeding breakfast to whomever hadn't eaten yet. She would be kept busy with household chores. She would fix Campbell soup for lunch. She would put kiddos down for naps and end up sleeping for a little bit herself. In later years, she'd sometimes be taking care of her Avon route. When we lived in Texas and Utah, she also kept an eye out for newcomers and would make them treats to welcome them to the neighborhood. In Utah, when she was angry, she'd climb up the Russian Olive tree that she hated and work at sawing down another limb. She didn't have much "me" time. She had no problem keeping busy.
Dad. He was at work. Teaching other kiddos.
