Jacque Moran (My Mom!): Childhood Stories

moving the podcast – interview from November 6, 2013

~~~

I don’t see my parents as much since they retired and moved a couple of hours away. So when I got the rare chance to spend an afternoon with my mom, I asked if she’d talk with me for the podcast. I wanted to hear about when she was growing up. Among other things, we talked about kids running freely all over the neighborhood, not keeping your front doors locked, and how things today are different and somehow still the same. I don’t ask enough about my parent’s histories, and this was a fun chat for me, getting to hear new stories and getting some of what I thought I knew cleared up a bit.

Mom Icon“I would not want to be a young adult or a young teenager again. But I would go back and be a kid again. Especially if I could pull up more of the memories of being a kid again, if I could just restore those memories.”
