Mother’s Rule Book

With Mother’s Day coming up, it’s time to thank mom for everything she did for us!  One of the ways she taught us was by giving us a lot of rules to live by.  Here are a few rules that might have seemed crazy to us at the time, but they were her way of teaching us how to live.

•    You have to eat all of your vegetables before dessert.  Mom knew that we had to eat right to grow and stay healthy, so she made sure we ate all of our healthy food before we had anything that wasn’t as great.

•    Keep your room clean.  This was mom’s way of teaching us to clean house, even if we didn’t like it.

•    Brush your teeth before you go to bed.  This rule was mom teaching us good dental habits.

•    Go to bed at a certain time.  Mom wanted to make sure we were used to a schedule.  She also knew that kids and teens really do need more sleep than adults, so she made certain we got it.

What was in your mother’s rule book?  Did you really hate some of her rules?  Have you adapted any of her rules for your own children? 

Don’t forget to thank mom for everything she did by sending her some beautiful Mother’s Day flowers in Springfield, OH.
