Recently, my mom moved to another state. Now, I don't think it was because of my sisters and I, but honestly, it's difficult to tell. But this Mother's Day will be the first where I don't sit with mom, have brunch and make nice with my sisters. So, in honor of my mom here's some advice from her that I can't live without.
- Always wear clean underwear. Until I became a parent, I though this lesson was unnecessary. Then Junior came along and I realized that you are not born with clean underwear habits, you develop them after a lifetime of having your mother nag you about it. I can only hope that I am as successful as my mother, who has never had to rush to the hospital after one of us has been in a car accident and hear the dreaded words, "We could have saved your daughter, but she wasn't wearing clean underwear."
- Don't put a tattoo on anything that will sag or grow wider in the future. Yes, my mother really did give my sisters and I this advice. And yes, all of us took it
