You’re never too old to learn from your mom. Shortly after my last blog post went up, I received a call from my mom to let me know it included a typo. She was right.
She usually is.
Like the time she advised me to wear a plaid bow tie in my first grade elementary school picture despite my protests. It is one of the cuter pictures of me as a kid.
Like the time she encouraged me to select a female historical figure (Sacajawea) for my fourth grade social studies report. I was the only one in the class who did to the teacher’s delight.
Like the times she encouraged me to call my grandma because grandma wouldn’t always be around (how I wish I could call her now).
Like the time she encouraged me to have 10 bridesmaids (plus two junior bridesmaids) in my wedding party because why wouldn’t I want to be surrounded by 12 of the people I care about most even if they take over the altar?
Like the numerous times she told me to “just buy it!” I would have a wardrobe of three shirts and two pairs of pants if she didn’t. (I hate to shop.)
Like the times she encouraged me to dress Baby Blue in a onesie underneath her clothes to keep her little body warm. We visited the pediatrician only once for a non “well visit” during her first year of life.
I could go on. But I think the point has been made. Need any advice? I’ll run it by Mary Kay. She’s usually right!
