Ten things I've learnt from my mother

The most important relationship a child has is her relationship with her parent of the same sex. My mom and I have a wonderful relationship.  I've learnt so much from her through the years... hopefully, I will teach my daughters lots in time to come as well.

Here are 10 of the most important things I've learnt from my mom.
  1. Be patient with people- Don't be quick to snap, even if you think they are wrong.
  2. Always buy gym shoes 1/2 size bigger to accommodate your socks
  3. Realise the importance of diet, health and fitness for everyone- not just for weight loss but overall well-being
  4. Always keep in touch with friends and family- my mom is better at using that phone and keeping in touch with people than anyone else I know. Seriously, she counts the long distance minutes she has in her plan each month and uses every single one
  5. Realising that you are not always the boss of each plan, choice and decision and that's okay
  6. Sometimes it's better to be kind instead of striving to be right- I can't remember ever hearing her say 'I told you so. '
  7. As you get older, wear lighter coloured nail polish on your toes- big difference...just saying
  8. It is never to late to learn- both parents strive on this. My mom has declared this year "The Year of Technology" and is learning to improve her use of the computer, email. She even got an iPad... although I think all she does on the iPad is read this blog. 
  9. Make a really big deal out of birthdays! Up till now, I get a care package for my birthday and a really nice card. 
  10. Wherever they are and however busy everyone's life is, be there for your children- you're their biggest champion!

We love you, Mommy and wish you a wonderful, relaxing Mother's Day! 

S, N & D

Happy Mother's Day to all.
