1.) Marry someone who has a family that you respect and get along with.  You don't have to agree on everything, but you're not just marrying your spouse, you are marrying their family as well. 

2.) Kids like rules and boundaries.  They can easily pick up on empty threats.  Don't threaten a punishment you aren't willing to follow through on. 


My mom passed away almost 7 years ago.  Those are the biggies that stick with me!

For nursing.....

RELAX! When I was trying to get my first baby to latch on, he was crying, I was crying, and she told me to just get comfortable and relax because he can sense my frustration and anxiety. So, I handed him over, someone gave him a finger to suck on, I got comfortable, and tried latching again.....and it worked!!!

Also, my mom taught a lot by example. She loved being with us, nurturing us and guiding us. I follow a lot by her example (positive examples). I love my mom :)

Regarding nursing:
- you should have a "breastfeeding personality"

Regarding life :
- always, no matter what the situation , do the best you can

- try to make other people around you feel better

-never be surprised if people behave consistently.

Not her advice, but her behavior:

She didn't gossip, even with her best friend

Even though she worked full-time, she volunteered

She refused to take sides when third-parties tried to involve her in their marriage problems

She gave to charities and her church

She always did what she thought was best for her kids especially early on when I was young and my parents had very little money.

She wasn't perfect and had her faults, but if I could follow her example of how she lived her life, I would be a pretty good woman

Do what you know to be right.

Marry your best friend so even if you aren't head over heels in love with them 24/7, you still love them fiercely enough to make it work.

Favorite parenting advice is to put baby on the boob as soon as they make a whimper, haha.

Smile when they're hurt don't freak out. They learn how to handle bad situations from how you react. Smile and act like it's not big deal, even if that means laughing all the way to the emergency room.
