10 Things I Learned From Mom...

In honor of my mother's 80th birthday (in a few days), I wanted to re-post a "tribute" I did to her several years ago...



10 Things I Learned From Mom…

Use proper English

Never use the word “fart”

Mom will always eat the burned pancake

The person who makes the telephone call, should always be the one to end the call

If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all


The words to “Mairzydoats and Dozydoats”


No matter how bad you feel, NEVER complain


That “You Are My Sunshine” is the best song to sing to your kids



No matter how old you are, you’re never too old to have fun


No matter what, mom will always love you

We love you mom!
