One day not too long ago..2 Australian mamas were sitting on a back deck, sipping wine.. and talking up all the oxygen available.. when the conversation turned to life lessons.. and what they thought were the ones that certainly and without doubt needed to be learned. The two teenage daughters of the 2 mamas were, in turn, amazed, amused, and repulsed, by the words of wisdom tumbling forth from the mamas' mouths. These are, in no particular order, those words.

Being angry with your life partner does not mean you will leave them or break up, it just means you are angry with them.

You do not have to love your job every minute of every day, even the best jobs in the world can be tedious.

Good friends will tell each other when their houses smell like wet dogs.

Even though you love the name you have chosen for your baby or pet, know that it will resemble shards of glass running over your tongue when you say it for the millionth time that day.

Choose a name for your pet or baby that you love more than you thought possible because that love will have to sustain you through some dark moments.

Savour the first time you hear your baby say the word "mum" or "mummy", because it gets a bit thin after hear it strung out over three syllables "MU-UU-MM".

Learn the difference between MU-UU-MM (insert whiny tone here) and MU-UU-MM (spurting blood event).
