27 Things I’m Glad My Mom Taught Me

27 Things I'm Glad My Mother Taught Me

For better or for worse, our first impressions of the world usually come through the people who raise us. Luckily for me, the women in my family were able to gently guide me through any situation, offering their priceless opinions and advice along the way. They conveyed much of their wisdom through words, but I learned even more through their actions. In honor of Mother’s Day, here are some of the best bits of advice and life lessons I’ve learned from my amazing mom (and by proxy, my aunts and my grandmothers).

Girl Talk: When You’re Not A Mom On Mother’s Day

When You're Not A Mom On Mother's Day

As the song so painfully and beautifully goes, motherless children have a hard time. I am lucky I was not one of those children. And I’m not one of those adults. My mom is in excellent health and we have a close relationship. I’m grateful for that.

Animal Moms & Babies!

Is there anything sweeter than animal moms snuggling their babies? Even if you and your mom don’t have the most Hallmark of relationships, your heart melts into a big mushy puddle when you see a mommy dog/goat/wildebeest/whatever giving her newborn babe a bath with her tongue.

Scientists have also discovered the very positive, and sometimes negative, influences moms can have on their daughters’ lives. Keep reading to find out what they are.

As She Gets Older, She Likes You More Than Dad.  If you noticed that your mom texts and calls you more and more, British researchers say that’s totally normal. A 2012 study analyzed two billion cell phone calls and half a billion texts and found that in early adulthood, women communicate most with romantic partners.
