Don’t you hate it when you grow up and you realize basically everything your mother has ever said told you is usually right? (Damn it!)
Now, whenever I make a big fat life decision I have to excuse myself to call my mother. <– Serious.
“Um…yeah I think I can do that. Hold on, I need to go call my mother quick.”
I mean, it’s a little ridiculous but I swear everything I’ve ever done against my mother’s advice has ended with the “I told you so” lecture. I guess old people really are wise. 😉
So as I was going through some photos this morning, I came across these and it reminded me of that ONE time I didn’t listen to my mother’s advice.
Long story short, last summer I decided to buy a puppy (against my mother’s advice NOT to). Because you know, I moved out of the house, had a full-time job and thought buying a puppy was the step in “growing up”.
Mom, you were right. Lesson learned.
I will now never own a dog or have a child. (how people have a dog, child, husband, clean house and job? Yeah, no idea…I’m guessing this is why god gave us wine. And girlfriends.)
And while it was a big lesson learn-er, it was quite possibly the most fun week of my life.
(I LOVE this picture!)
What my 20s has taught me so far- don’t buy a puppy when you have a full-time job.
And always listen to your mother’s advice.
