10 things that I want to teach my daughters


10. There are very few situations in life that can't be made better by petting a cat or dog.

9. Sometimes it is ok to go to bed angry.

8. No matter what, love your sister. Through the ups and downs, if you love her like your best friend, you will always have someone to depend on.

7. Read, read, read....read about stuff you love, stuff you hate....you never know what you will learn and where you will go.

6. We will always love you, even when you screw up royally.

5. Don't ever let other people tell you what you can and can't do, not even your father and I. We will steer you in the right direction, but only you know your own path.

4. No matter what your father tells you, the Miami Dolphins are the root of all evil, we hate them more than Republicans.

3. You can always talk to us about anything... anything!

2. Choose to be happy, it is so much easier and makes you so much healthier.

1. Nothing will be more important to me than being your mom. You will understand this when you have kids.... after you are 30 and your dad lets you start dating.

Love you sooooo much!

I don't have kids yet but i loved your list. I think i might cry. You sound like a wonderful mother, reminding me of my own mother who lives continents away.
