Memories of Mom — Squaw Wrestling Mom

kjwIs there anything Moms can’t do? For whatever reason, that is a lesson boys seem to have a hard time learning.

Or maybe it’s just genetic with the men in our family.

The other day we posted a few videos of Maurine Westover sharing memories of her Mom. Now we get to hear a little of her experience as a mother. I’m sure this wasn’t the only challenge she faced — and I’m equally sure she met other challenges with similar success.

In today’s installment of Memories of Mom Kyle J. Westover recalls challenging his mother to a contest of “squaw wrestling” — if only because he had spurt up in size and had the mental capacity of a teenager. (What was he thinking?)

Do you have a memory of Mom to archive forever as part of our family history? Please do so by sharing an audio file or a phone call…and we’ll post it up here so all can enjoy.
