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.

Never leave a friend alone who is vomiting, as icky as it is, stay with them, hold their hair out of the way and stay with them.

Never buy tablets of any kind when you are at a nightclub or party.  Always carry panadol with you so you know what it is you are taking.

Trust us enough to tell us where you are going and with whom.  You may need us to know just that information in an emergency.

Know that there will be times we will be disappointed, won’t like what you do or approve, but we will always love you.

Valentine’s Day does not need to be celebrated with doves, gifts and public displays of affection.  A hearty  “happy Valentine’s Day” is all that is required.  The same goes for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.

Some HomeBrand groceries are ok, others are not.  The trick is working out which is which.

Never trust someone who doesn't smile with their eyes.  They do not mean it
Sometimes it is better to walk away from an argument than win it.

If it is important, then fight for it.

No-one will advocate for you or your kids better than you, don't give that role to anyone else.

Sometime "nice" girls are really dragons whose "nice" scales blind you.

Listen to that little 7-year-old inside you, they know what is good for you and what isn't.

There are a few days every year when you can eat a bowl full of skittles with a spoon, but don't make it a habit.

Remember that what you put in must be balanced by what you put out.

A new baby can never be spoiled, pick them up when they cry and comfort them and you.

It is ok to go to the movies or dinner by yourself.

Learn when to cop it silently and when not to.

If you want to wear THAT hat, then do so.

Only the manufacturers of liners call them "panties".
