I asked my mom about her younger life and what it was like being a kid. She gladly helped me with completing the questions and finished them as soon as she could. She mixed in answering the questions with cleaning our home and relaxed with watching Survivor on TV with my sister. She cleans a lot, I think she loves it. She helps cleans the pool where we all love to swim, especially her. Cleaning was her main profession for a long time when she ran her own business called

Summer. 1985. The sky is clear and the sun is bright. It's a perfect day to go out on the water. The summer residents of Buttonwood beach live their vacation time with great freedom. Riding in golf carts, driving around the park and visiting friends and family in the other trailers. Hitching up their boats to their trucks, all of varying sizes, shapes, and purposes and letting them into the water with great precision and teamwork on the boat launches. But the greatest part was the time spent just having fun. Thats what my mom did. With her two older sisters and younger brother, days were spent swimming in the warm shine of the sun and laughing around the safety and protection of a bonfire at night. My mom said the best part was just,"enjoying being a kid." She said her Nan-Nan would watch her and her siblings along with her friends play and just have fun. She is grateful for growing up in a place that was so fun and allowed for so much freedom.

Cleaning was her main profession for a long time when she ran her own business called "Home Clean Home."Her passion for housing has led her into a career in Real estate. But I'd say that her main focus has always been being a mother. She would do anything for us.
