Mother’s Day 2015

Today I am reminded, as I frequently am, of my exceedingly good fortune. I both have a remarkable woman as my mother and am mother to three spectacular human beings. As a bonus, I have a fantastic mother-in-law.

In honor of Mother’s Day, I will share a tiny bit of what I have learned from my own mother, from my husband’s mother, and from being a mother.

From Mom:

-Always say “please” and “thank you.”

-If your friends don’t treat you well, then find new friends.

-Wounds heal.

-Shit is water soluble.

From Mom-in-Law:

-Significantly different parenting styles and personalities can result in equally successful offspring outcomes.

-For goodness sake, it’s just a spider.

From being a mom:

-When a frisbee gets stuck on top of a high hedge, using a snow shovel to try to scoop it off tends to push it deeper into the shrub. Get a hockey stick and poke it up and out from underneath.

Wishing everyone a happy Mother’s Day. I highly suggest incorporating french toast somewhere into today’s menu.
