Dolly Parton has recently revealed a very interesting story about the time her mother sewed her toes back on after an accident when she was a child. What's even more shocking is her mother used the same needle that she used to make quilts! Parton was born and raised in Tennessee and her parents were sharecroppers. Her father also hunted for food and the family would also turn to other no-cost ingredients that included rocks. Partons recalls that when she was younger, her mother, Avie Lee Parton, would make Stone Soup with rocks that she and her brothers would collect. \u201cWe always made jokes and said we didn\u2019t even know we were poor till some smart-aleck up and told us,\u201d Parton tells TODAY back in 2015. \u201cWe didn\u2019t have any money, but we were rich in things that money don\u2019t buy. You know, like love and kindness and understanding.\u201d Dolly Parton's mom sewed her toes back on after an accident when they couldn't afford to see a doctor Because her family was poor, they didn't have money to pay for a doctor when this accident rolled around. \u201cI was probably about 6 or 7. I had jumped across the fence, onto a broken Mason jar and cut three of my toes,\u201d Parton reveals. \u201cJust my little toes on my right foot \u2014 almost off. And they were just kind of hanging there. So they grabbed me up and all. My dad and my brothers, they had to hold me down."
