10 Things Your Mom Never Told You
There’s an unwritten mom code.
We tend to hold back some of our secret musings from our children, regardless of how heartfelt or genuine these thoughts are since no good would come of sharing them, especially when children are young and don’t fully understand many of the nuances of love and parental feelings.
Here are a few of my personal “parental truisms”. Do any ring true for you?
- Mom always knew you fed your Brussels sprouts to the dog.
- Brussels sprouts blow.
- Allowing you to fail at times hurt her so much more than it ever did you.
- Honestly, despite encouraging words to the contrary, you should really never, ever consider a singing career.
5. That dried cantaloupe seed necklace you made for her in second grade that she wore with pride, was about as comfortable as a swarm of riled up fire ants.
- She secretly did find some of your disgusting fart jokes funny.
- She loved your ratty, old teddy bear almost as much as you did.
- There are three types of mom tears: sad, happy, and love.
9. To her, the Mona Lisa has nothing on your smile.
10. And, finally, and most importantly, you really were her favorite in so many ways.
