Moms Rule, Y'all.

The Duds love our moms. We may not like them all the time, but we love them all the time. As five women hitching ourselves over the wall into adulthood, we appreciate them more than ever. In honor of Mother's Day yesterday (we r busy wit lyfe), each Dud has answered a small series of questions about their mothers. Enjoy:


Nicole


What's the one physical trait you're most glad you received from your mom?

I don't have many of her physical traits, but I'm glad I have her blue eyes. I'm also pretty sure my red hair came from her side, so gracias for that as well, senorita. 

What's the one character trait you're most glad to have received from your mom?

My drive and determination. She's a go-getter who taught me that I can do anything as long as I try hard and don't give up.

What's the most important lesson your mother has ever taught you?

That family is always the most important thing. 
....and that no one looks good in gaucho pants.

If Present Day-Nicole could go back and tell your newly-pregnant mom anything, what would you say?

"Holy crap, my time machine worked!"



Megan
The Greatest Photo You Will Ever See.


What's the one physical trait you're most glad you received from your mom?

Well, my mom and I aren't exactly identical twins. She is 5'4 with a tiny waist and some hips while I am 5'7 with a huge waist and no hips whatsoever. We do share one physical trait in the chest region...lets be honest...we have a nice rack. Thanks Jamie.

What's the one character trait you're most glad to have received from your mom?

Her personality. She is the funniest person I know. Nobody understands our humor but we crack ourselves up! She has the best personality, her laughter is infectious and her love of life just draws everyone to be around her.

What's the most important lesson your mother has ever taught you?

Fill life with laughter. Also "beer before liquor never sicker. Liquor before beer, your in the clear!"


If Present Day-Megan could go back and tell your newly-pregnant mom anything, what would you say?

Good luck. She's a hell raiser.



Caroline
Alice and her young sons.

What's the one physical trait you're most glad you received from your mom?

I don't think we look too much alike, but definitely my eyes. They're warm and brown and I think they fit well on my face. (Seriously, though. It's the little things.)  

They absolutely make up for her also giving me her feet.

What's the one character trait you're most glad to have received from your mom?

MY LOVE AND NATURAL, RAW ADEPTNESS FOR MATH AND NUMBERS!
Kidding, that DNA train missed my depot by 200 miles. 

Probably her tolerance and open-mindedness towards people. And her disdain for MRS degrees. #girlpowah

What's the most important lesson your mother has ever taught you?

Never, ever, ever, ever kick the seat in front of you on an airplane.  In fact, she kind of made this seem that if you do, they'll lock you in a dog crate with the checked baggage. <- Effective. Especially when your kids are flying unaccompanied for years. Fear works wonders. (Thanks, Mama.)

If Present Day-Caroline could go back and tell your newly-pregnant mom anything, what would you say?

"I can't stay long because I've got to meet with my parole officer. Oh, you know it's twins, right?"



Jessica



What's the one physical trait you're most glad you received from your mom?

My nose. Well maybe not most thankful, but definitely most defining. I also sometimes like to blame my nose on her because she didn't catch me when I face planted on some cobblestone and broke it when I was six.

What's the one character trait you're most glad to have received from your mom?

A love for crafts. As a child of a kindergarten teacher, many of my youthful days were filled with glue, glitter, and stickers. But, now as I am starting to gather things to decorate my new house with, I am not limited to buying objects. Yet I can spend my time/money making something that I enjoyed making.

What's the most important lesson your mother has ever taught you?

Best time for snack time is nighttime. A lesson I have put through many trials and it always holds true. There's nothing like having a piece of toast and a glass of chocolate milk around midnight.

If Present Day-Jessica could go back and tell your newly-pregnant mom anything, what would you say?
Prepare yourself. You are about to have the most adorable child. Like, you can't even imagine.
 


Rachel



What's the one physical trait you're most glad you received from your mom?

My blue eyes. Well, it takes two to tango, so I guess I need to thank my dad for them, too. Also, my bone structure. That sounds weird, but we both have an hourglass figure. I'd rather have a little curve to me than be stick straight. Oh yeah, and the eyebrow raise.

What's the one character trait you're most glad to have received from your mom?

My mom genuinely cares about people. She goes out of her way to help people, even if she doesn't know them that well. She has a little firecracker in her, too. She's one of those people you DO NOT want on your bad side. I'm kinda like that, right?

What's the most important lesson your mother has ever taught you?

No white after Labor Day.

If Present Day-Rachel could go back and tell your newly-pregnant mom anything, what would you say?

Buckle up, hot stuff. I'm gonna be a stubborn one.
