Eileen, my mother (we called her Eileen instead of "mother"), always seemed a bit bemused to find herself raising six lively children in in a small Midwestern town. Our father used to say they had three before they knew what was causing it. Nevertheless, when life sent her down this unexpected path, Eileen faced the challenges of bringing up six rowdy kids with humour, a generous if naive spirit, and a lot of creativity.
