The Things I've learned from my mom....




Because I am starting to realize that my mom....probably really does know everything.....



1. That you meet the same people going up the ladder as you do going down...


2. That when the streetlight turns green...you'd better go....cause it's the only shade of green they got....


3. Pick your battles.....you may not win this battle...but you still can win the war....



4. Save it for the big stuff.....when it comes to discipline.....


5. It's hard not to laugh when you should be stern....so the turn the head and cough works really well....


6. That the love you have for your child....is a love you will have never experienced before


7. How to be an independent woman....even when you are in a partnership.....



8. That it's not what you go through...but how you go through it....



9. That soap and water don't cost a lot...so there is no excuse not to be clean.....



10. That you don't need to approve...to accept......



11. That there is life after a broken heart....



12. That a mother's love is unconditonal.....





The list could go on and on and on.....with most of the little tid-bits...you don't even realize you remember...until you trip on it....the "oh my god I sound Like my Mother"....phrase...is a good indicator of something you've learned from your mom....



Thanks mom...for the informal...yet extremely thorough education.....



I will make sure to pass it on to the next generation.......

Thanks. I tried their website. It still show on there, but it won't let you order it. It has been discontinued. I even tried calling! I finally found it on ebay!

#5 is so darn difficult!!!

A friend of mine puts her hands over her face like she's crying, in order to hide the smile.

Mama's are sneaky like that :-)
