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.
-Always say “please” and “thank you.”
-If your friends don’t treat you well, then find new friends.
-Shit is water soluble.
-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.
