Top Ten Things I Learned From My Parents


I’ve never made it a secret that my mom is one of my best friends, so I thought this post would be super easy. Except, my mom has always said one thing when I ask her what advice she’d want to pass down. See #9. The rest are from my bio dad and my stepdad, since they love passing down  bits of “wisdom.”topten1

Okay, my mom actually said this one.topten2

My stepdad wrote this in a letter to me before I went to boot camp. <3topten3

Another one from my mom. Though, I’m pretty sure she got this from my grandfather…topten4

This one is from my mom too. I’ve passed it along to my daughter, as well. I overheard her telling it to someone at school, so my mom is pretty proud of my parenting skills. :) topten5

My biological father taught me this. He also taught me how to do both.topten6

Another gem from my biological father. And yes, he really gave that advice word-for-word.topten7

My stepdad told me this after I joined the Navy. A little too late to read the fine print on the contract, but I’ve taken it to heart ever since.topten8

My biological dad told my twin and me this when we were 16. I’ve never forgotten it.topten9

This is the number one thing my mother wants to pass on to me and everyone else in the world. So if you’re reading this, Momma says you need to go moisturize. Right now. We’ll wait.topten10My stepdad told me this when I was considering quitting college because I was so frustrated and burned out. Thanks, Daddy. <3 <3 <3
