A Day In The Life Of The Incredible One And Only Screamin Mom
Sunday, May 14th, was Mother’s Day and I took the time to spend the day with my own mother. She goes by Pat to friends and sometimes my friends call her “Screamin’ Mom”. You can say it’s 100% true as she was the first person to ever hear me scream. She’s been my biggest fan after all these years and continues to amaze me every day. However, there is more to this story of “A Day In The Life Of The Incredible One And Only Screamin’ Mom”.
My mom still has items around her house from both my sister and myself, including the infamous hand artwork from kindergarten. You can tell it took me a bit to get used to cutting with scissors with how rigid those lines are… This was a part of being a kid in the ’60s! Now the wooden spoon artwork has survived but it definitely didn’t fair too well over the years.
What a Mother’s Day full of memories we had on Sunday! I didn’t even plan anything because my mother had it planned perfectly… She told me what restaurants would be packed and chose one that would be open and NOT busy which was just what she wanted. Hats off to the Buffalo Wild Wings in Port Huron. We both scarfed down 15 boneless wings and she had an adult beverage. No shots this time.
One of the incredible stories that came up at lunch had to deal with my mother getting a call to pick us kids up from the movies at Macomb Mall. These were my childhood friends at the time back when I was 10 years old. My mom forgot to ask how many kids there were in total and it may have slipped my mind to inform her there were five of us in total. There has to be some record on the Guinness World Records official site with ultimate record-breaking facts & achievements for five kids in a Corvette at one time. A record that I think stands in history in my childhood neighborhood.
Honestly, it’s still amazing how she put up with little Screamin’ Scott all these years. From riding a skateboard off the roof into the swimming pool, to my first car accident, or riding my bicycle into the back of my parent’s car in the driveway. My mom was always there to support me through the thick and thin; and even my first radio gig in Wapakoneta, Ohio, where she came to visit me often. Both of my parents are big supporters of my radio career over the years dating back to my start in high school radio back in 1979-82.
All my friends love my mother and I know why. She has a heart of gold and kept me on the path of being a good person. I can’t wait to celebrate with her more this upcoming June for her birthday when she will turn 89 years old this year. My mom is definitely still a kid at heart because whenever I visit we always try to swing on the swings by her house. One other thing to mention about her is that she went to school in Detroit and she was a cheerleader! She most recently cheered for me when I made my latest move to WCSX.
I’m happy to say that this was another wonderful Mother’s Day in the books. Cheers to all the Mothers present and past that had an impact on your life. I want to thank my mom for always being there and hope I make you proud. And that’s A Day In The Life Of The Incredible One And Only Screamin’ Mom!
