Liliana & Alejandra
How do you show love to your mother/daughter everyday?
L: With lots of “I Love you” throughout the day.
A: I talk to my mom every single day about 4-6 times a day and every single time we speak I tell her I love her. Never once do we hang up without saying “I love you”.
What is your favorite memory with your mother/daughter?
L: Being present with Ale for the birth of my beautiful granddaughter, Gabriella and precious grandson, Alexander.
A: My mom and I have a beautiful relationship, a bond like no other. She is my best friend. We look out for each other like no one else. When I was younger and Super Nintendo was the thing… mom and I would stay up late playing (even when I had friends over they loved hanging out with mom) and we would play till we got ahead in the game… then we would take a donut break. My mom would take us late in the night to Dunkin Donuts to buy some yumminess!
If your mom/daughter could have any super power, what would it be?
L: Making things happen instantaneously.
A: The super power of… Regenerative Healing. My mom is a Super Mom, Super Sister, Super Wife, Super EVERYTHING! There is nothing mom can’t do and she does it all well. Throughout the years, mom has been the savior of the family. She has been the guardian all the way from my new born brother whom had a stroke in my mother’s womb in 1990, to my great grandmother and grandmother both dealing with health complications, and onto my aunt with uterine cancer. All in all, mom is there for everyone 100%. If mom had this super power of “Regenerative Healing”, it would alleviate her stress level and make the healing process of her loved ones so much quicker.
If you could trade places with your mom/daughter for a day, what would you do different?
L: Absolutely nothing!
A: I personally don’t think I would do anything different in mom’s shoes. I love who she is and what she represents. It would be nice to trade places to give mom a less stressful life for one day. She deserves that and so much more!
If your mom/daughter could be a celebrity, who would they be?
L: Audrey Hepburn
A: Jamie Lee Curtis
How would your mother/daughter describe you in one word?
How are you alike?
L: Optimistic, family oriented, caring, loyal.
A: You never really know how alike you are to your mom until you have kids of your own. I have found that my mom taught me so much while growing up and all those “little details” like baking, and holiday traditions, I am also doing with my children.
How are you different?
L: I have a strong character and she is more passive.
A: I am a “NOW” person. If something needs to get done I want to do it “NOW” and not wait till tomorrow. Mom will be ok in waiting a day, or 2 or 3… She calls me psycho!
