…said knock you out.
…told me not to come.
…said there’d be days like this.
Last year, in anticipation of Mother’s Day (in the US), we talked about our relationships with our moms, in all their messy, loving glory. This year, we’d like to hear from you about the some of the best advice your mom–or gram, or auntie, or maternal role model of your choice–gave you.
It can be general or specific, heavy or fluffy, funny or serious. It can even be advice that wasn’t given to you as “advice,” but as “how it’s done,” which is how it worked in my house.
- Don’t over-work your baked goods or they’ll be too tough or chewy.
- Wear sunscreen.
- You can probably make it better yourself.
- Toast and tea is a perfectly reasonable dinner.
- Having someone or something to take care of (family, pets, plants) gives your life meaning.
Mamas say a lot of things. For this week’s FFT, give us some of their best.
