Happy Mother's Day to all you mom's out there.
I hope you're having a fantastic day.
In honor of Mother's Day, I thought I'd pay tribute to my Mom, by listing a few key pieces of advice that she continues to give me today.
Even though I'm 28 years old & married, with a dog & a house & a college degree & a real job...
It pretty much all began when I turned 16 & started driving.
"Always wear shorts (or pants) with the pockets that button. That way you can keep your money in there & you'll know if someone's trying to take it."
(Oh, yeah. Cuz' they'd have to UN-button the button's first, right?)
"DO NOT EVER accept a drink (alcohol or other) from a man you don't know. They might have put that date rape drug in it & YOU DO NOT want to get raped."
(Uh, really? That doesn't sound like fun to you?)
"Always keep a quarter in your purse. If you're in a situation you don't want to be in, you can call me & I'll come get you."
(So, then, what's my CELL PHONE for?)
"Don't ride with anyone who's been drinking!"
(Sorry, dude, you've had WAY TOO MUCH Diet Coke. I can't get in the car with you.)
"Call me whenever you get where you're going, so I know you got there okay."
(Hey, Mom. I just wanted to let you know I got to the gas station without incident.)
"Be a sweet girl. And, always say thank you."
(Cuz' being mean & NEVER saying thank you won't get me anywhere in life?)
"When you're on a date, don't get out of the car until the boy opens the door for you."
(So, I guess I'm never getting out of the car.)
"When you're at the mall, always keep one hand on your purse, so that nobody can steal it."
(Um, okay. Because if someone was trying to steal my purse, keeping a hand on my purse would stop them.)
What advice did your Mother give you? Leave a comment below.
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!
