The Best Advice My Mom Ever Gave Me

Posted By Jessica Fisher On July 27, 2011 @ 11:44 am In Joyful Womanhood | 4 Comments

My mom is a clever woman. She knows that little girls with long hair do better with a shampoo at the kitchen sink. She knows that little fingers can “paint” cookies [4] better than they can pipe or frost. She knows that little hands are more successful at feeding the Christmas tree with ice cubes [5] instead of schlepping a bucket of water across the living room.

There’s no end to the good ideas that my mom has handed down to me over the years. She’s a genius, I tell ya! But, unlike those of us who offer unsolicited advice rather verbosely (ahem), my mom has always been subtle about how she’s advised me.

Recently, I put together a little tribute to my mom, complete with funky 1970s style music to set the mood. ;) It’s about the best advice my mom ever gave me — and how it informs my parenting.

If the video doesn’t show up on your screen, you can go watch it on my YouTube channel [6].

Currently, Mott’s [7] is running a fun campaign where your kids can share the best advice you ever gave them. What a hoot! Kids do say the darndest things. Hop on over to the Mott’s Facebook page [7] to upload your clip, two minutes maximum. Every week they’ll choose a winner to post on their Facebook page.

Like  Mott’s on Facebook [7] and share your kid’s mom’s best advice!
