Questions we should all ask Mom

"When did you realize you were no longer a child?" is the last of ten Questions We Should All Ask Mom, from Lisa Belkin's NY Times blog. For more ideas on how to trigger interesting responses, check out
Writing your memoirs or telling your family story, which includes links to such useful material as StoryCorps' Question Generator. StoryCorps provides basic questions to ask parents, grandparents, friends, or others whose words and voices you want to capture. Ask those questions now and capture the responses on audio or video. Avoid the regret so many of us feel when we realize what we wish we'd learned from people now unable to tell us.

As Lisa Belkin says, she got her ten questions from Judith Newman's story in Real Simple: 10 Questions to Ask Your Mother , posted on CNN.
