Parents Are People Too

If you can’t see the embedded video, click here.

Mother’s Day is coming up this weekend, and I thought these interviews were a very funny way to acknowledge it.

I always loved hearing stories about what my parents did when they were my age when I was growing up. They must have told certain stories dozens of times.

It’s been even more rewarding, though, to get to know them as fellow adults. Once all of their kids were grown and out of the house, I started seeing glimpses of what their lives must have been like before we existed. They were fairly young when I was born, but it’s still interesting to think of the 20+ years of life they experienced before I was even blip on the radar.

My family doesn’t actually make a big fuss over Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, but I’m very tempted to ask my parents the same question Jimmy Kimmel asked all of the women in this video. I wonder how they will answer it?

Readers, what don’t your children (or nieces/nephews, or godchildren, or any other younger people in your lives) know about what you were up to before they showed up?
