Mother’s Day Tribute: Babble Staff Share the Lessons They Learned from Mom

By babbleeditors |

Respect for life. Independence. Family values. Life-altering fashion tips. What do all of these things have in common? They’re lessons we learned from our moms!

From the time you first stepped into your kindergarten classroom to the moment you received your college diploma, you’ve had more teachers than you can probably remember. There’s no denying the impact every educator has had on your life and the lives of countless others. But this time of year, it’s appropriate to pay tribute to the first teacher you ever had.

In honor of Mother’s Day, members of the Babble community came together to share the most important tips, tricks, and secrets our moms have taught us over the years. Through the good times and the bad (including those infamously horrible teenage years), one thing will always remain the same — moms are our closest, best, and longest lasting teachers.

Check out these 15 funny and inspiring lessons we learned from our mamas. Happy Mother’s Day!

    What a finely written little tribute!
    And what a cute baby you were, Andrea. Certainly took after your mommy, in more ways than one.

    I just wrote on my blog how my mom taught me it’s ok to sometimes eat an entire package of Red Vines at Target.
    Happy Mother’s Day, and thanks for sharing these stories
