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.

Be brave, display your courage, particularly when it comes to parenting your babies.  The world needs more brave parents right now.

Be grateful for every passing year that you do not need to take regular medication, because that time will come. 

Celebrate the changing of the season.  It is Mother Nature’s way of offering new experiences. (Although she could dial it back a bit for summer in Oz.  Just saying). 

Do not stress over events like Christmas.  They should not be times where you flip out, they are times for you and your family to celebrate whatever is important to you. 

The media is a toxic entity whose sole purpose is to speak to the lowest common denominator, particularly morning television. 

Never go on national TV without at least a shirt, good bra and proper shoes on.  UGG boots are not proper shoes.
