From Zoesquid This is... a photo of my mother and the best piece of advice my she gave me.
So this is my Mum, back in the 70's when she was just 20. The stunning creature in her arms is me, her third child and there are another six after me. (yes we had a TV, no we are not any religion that encourages making lots of babies, yes my parents understood how the birds and the bees works)
The best piece of advice was not really something that she ever had to say, but what she demonstrated through her actions; mothers milk is the normal food for little ones and breastfeeding is normal. My breastfeeding relationships with my own daughters have been very important. After a rough start with my first, I may have given up had I not seen breastfeeding as a part of our family life growing up.
From Angela at Three Buttons, This reminds me of my mother.
Tupperware! For a time when I was younger she was a Tupperware lady. She didn't do much for herself outside the home so it was good to see her doing something other than caring for us. I liked watching her get dressed up to go out and enjoyed getting into her sales kit. She bought a TV with some of the money she earned and it was still going strong many years after she finished up with them.
I still think of her when I use my extensive collection.
Happy Mother's Day
