  1. I like to think I am one of those wise mothers. My son was just promoted at his company but through having to travel and miss precious time with his kids decided to resign and gain employment in his hometown again. His company decided he was too valuable to let go and made him an offer he could not refuse. I like to think they saw the work ethics instilled in him growing up and I love the fact they are family orientated. I am proud to be his mother and I respect the company he works for.

  2. I think I have said everyone of those over the 45 years I have been a Mum and they grew up to be great kids and adults.

  3. I’m pretty sure I used a lot of those and my mother on me. I actually have a fridge magnet on the fridge at the moment that says “because I’m the mother, that’s why”.
