If you all were here for my post last week, you will understand the whole thing with the 600 Brilliant Blog Post Ideas and where it came from, but if not, you can check it out here. If not, then read on.
242. What 3 lessons (good or bad) did you learn from your own mother (or person you see as being your maternal figure).
Well, for heaven's sake. Who wants to be like their mother? I am sure that my daughter doesn't want to be like me just like I don't want to be like my mother, who at my age didn't want to be like her mother and so on and so on.
What did I learn? Good or Bad? Hmm? Well, I learned a few good things and bad things from my mother. I learned how to make gravy and before you ask, that is an important thing to know how to do because gravy from a jar or package well, that just sucks.
As far as bad lessons learned, I have to say that one of the biggest things that I
remember don't remember growing up is our parents telling us that they loved us every night before we went to bed or when we left. It's not that they didn't love us because I know they did, they just never said it. I knew that when I grew up and had kids that I was going to make sure that I told them all the time that I love them. And both myself and my Hubby constantly tell our daughter that we love her and we always have and we always will. I don't feel that we do it out of habit, we both feel that is something that is very important.
