Stage #3 - 12 years old, "My Mother doesn't really know quite
Stage #4 - 14 years old, "Mom doesn't know that, either."
Stage #5 - 16 years old, "My Mother? She's clueless."
Stage #6 - 18 years old, "That old woman?!"
Stage #7 - 25 years old, "Well, she might know a little bit about it!"
Stage #8 - 35 years old, "Before we decide, let's get Mom's opinion."
Stage #9 - 45 years old, "Wonder what Mom thinks about it?"
Stage #10 - 65 years old, "Wish I could talk it over with Mom."
Happy Mother's Day to all!
