Here are a few of my favorites.
This one always makes me feel better when everything that could go wrong, has gone wrong. My mom is a scientist, and apparently this was what they would say in the Lab when experiments didn't turn-out the way they expected.
She also, for reasons I don't know, is completely adamant that we fill-out the census:
She is also always very strict on pedestrian safety, as was her mother. To this day, after two generations of reminders not to, I never jaywalk.
And the only piece of advice from her that I don't follow:
My mom never has been a big crafter, and she is continually shocked that I am. So, of course, she was overjoyed when her grandson said, "I don't like arts & crap either, Gramma."
Happy Mother's Day, Mom. Thanks for all the great advice over the years.
What's some of the best advice your mom has given you?
