Dr Mom - one of many titles, and a Blog Hop!




Fellow writer and blogger, Chrys Fey, is helping her mom spread the word about her children's book. Tara and I decided to join this hop and share a little about our own awesome moms. 

Meet Cork. (Elizabeth's mom)

My mom passed away last year, but her memory and her lessons live on. My mom was never the average mom. She preferred time at the casino over time doing crafts. She was the queen of the off-color joke, and reality was often her biggest enemy. My mother was a dreamer and that was her greatest gift to me. My mom taught me to think big...to scoff at reality and create new ones with words. She also taught me that a person doesn't have to be perfect to be perfect. The quirks we try to smooth out in life are often the things that are most missed when we're gone.

And this is DORIS (Tara's Mom)

I was lucky enough to have my mom (& dad) visit me this weekend for my middle son's graduation. I don't get to see my mom very often because we live so far apart. But she makes up for it by sending encouraging and supportive cards and notes throughout the year. My mom is creative, sweet, and caring beyond belief - she doesn't even know how much she inspires me! She is the best example of how to persevere through tough times I know and I wouldn't have made it in this world without her!




And now, Chrys Fey's awesome Mama with her own book!


Title: Doctor Mom
Author: Elaine Kaye
Genre: Picture Story Book

BLURB: It’s Saturday, and Gregory Green can’t wait to have fun with his dad on the riding lawnmower, but something is wrong. Sammy, his teddy bear and best friend, won’t get out of bed. Gregory is worried when he sees Sammy’s left leg is torn. This is a case for Doctor Mom! Can they fix Sammy? And just how did Sammy get hurt in the first place?

    1. That is one of my favorite pictures of her. It does show her spirit. And she was in the kitchen...her favorite spot in the house.

  3. I am sorry your mother is no longer with you. She sounds like quite the character, as is my mother, who lives hundreds of miles away. She usually comes for the summer, but I will miss her very much as her health does not allow her to come this year. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and Elaine's cute book.

  4. Yes they are. My mom couldn't sing but she loved to sing. I was always telling her to hush. I would give anything to hear that off-key voice again singing anything. I'm sorry for you loss. Great picture.

    Congrats Elaine!
