Survival Tips (and friendly reminders) for the “Growing Up” years…and beyond

Junior Son turns 7 tomorrow. I have made him a huge scrap book (a once in a seven years present) and have written the following serious guidelines for him for growing up. I hope he remembers to refer to them along the way.

Always put the toilet seat down.

Never run away from home…ever!

Make sure that one day when you have a wife, you treat her as well as your dad treats me.

Love, Hugs and Snuggles are important now when you are 7. Make sure they are still important when you are 27.

No matter what, always try your best and then keep trying.

Be true to your true friends, but most importantly, be true to yourself.

Do good things for others because in the end it means you are doing something good for yourself.

Love your mum (or “mom”) even when you are a teenager.

When life gets tough, and it may…remember to breathe in and push your tummy out at the same time.

Speak to people the way you want to be spoken to.

Don’t judge too quickly.

No matter what – we will always love you. Always!

And sometimes…just sometimes…let your mum sing.

    Well teachermum, I LOVE your sense of humour, which is what us working mums need to survive . I luv your tips too and will (hopefull) use some, providing
    My porridge for brains will allow me to. Please keep me updated with tips and other
    Side effects of being a mum such as the crumple effect!

      Problem is I am still trying to work those ones out myself. Don’t even have a #1 yet… I truly do believe though that there might only be one survival tip for us ladies. A trip to the Bahamas every now and then.
