She's so right about letting your kids get away with stuff. In the end, the brattiness is not cute AT ALL.

Your mom was so exotic looking - such enormous, sultry eyes.


Your Mom was a very smart woman.
You learned well....


Your mama was a smart lady! Somehow, looking at this picture of her and reading the lyrics to that song...I'm envisioning a bit of Mae West's fiestiness in your mama!

The Girl Next Door

OMG I think our moms were sisters or something! Same song (except she's been lucky to have 1 excellent man for 53 years) and much of the same advice. I hope I am even 1/2 the mom she is and I'd be great. Hope your mother's day was excellent! Love your blog.


Since the iron came out in my home once a year, I'm pretty sure our moms didn't think alike about this one. Now MY kids on the other hand... don't even know what an iron is!!!


Cool song and some good advice
Happy mothersday to you too


I love your mom's words!
