Every year we take some time out to celebrate our moms on Mother's Day. This year ESSENCE wanted to help you not just celebrate her but strengthen those bonds by learning more about her. We posted a series of conversation-starters/challenges for you each day on our Instagram (@essencemag) and asked you to share her response (if she let you) with us using #ESSENCEMom. Here are some of our favorite responses so far.
ESSENCE Challenge: Ask your mom about her silliest mistake.What You Said: "At age 17, wearing a hot-pants jumpsuit to hang out with my friends. I had to call my mom to get cab fare to come home, because I would not have been comfortable at the bus stop!" — Beverly J., via Facebook.
