In their final week of hosting, the Georgia Girls want to know what advice your mom or dad passed on to you that you still use today.
You know? I can't think of any. I know that over the years they've given me LOTS of sound advice about everything from how to handle money to how to handle men. A lot of it I took, some I ignored. But I know I live by some of it because back when my stepson came to live with us, I'd have that weird, out-of-body experience that happens when you hear your parents' words coming out of your mouth. But that was the way I knew to handle young men, so I had that experience over and over again. And the really bizarre thing? Hearing your stepson say the same thing to his daughter that I said to him - and my parents said to me.
Because I've already said it to my stepson, it sounds more like my own words when I say them to my son. I'm betting that if he were asked the same question, he wouldn't be able to come up with anything either.
My parents are wise. I'm learning to be... from the masters.
