    My Mother , Nothing Like Me!

    I'm 35 and my mom is a spunky 56. As I should except my mother and all of her quirks now that we are adults, I say that lightly. My mother and I raised each other. For example, her 8th grade education wasn't enough to get her GED at 30 so I taught her algebra in 5th grade. Aside...
