The Top 10 Things Mum Was Right About

We here at Northies are a little too excited for Mother’s Day!

So much so, in addition to a whole Sunday dedicated to all the mothers out there (and a barrel of family fun of course), we thought we’d share our top 10 duly noted nuggets of motherly wisdom we can whole-heartedly throw our hands up and say she was right about!

No. 1 –  ‘TAKE A JACKET, YOU’ll BE COLD’

Every. time.

We have all been there, blue lips, goose-pimple clad and shaking life a leaf cursing our past selves for not taking Mum’s timely advice and taking that oh-so-imperetive-but-maybe-not-so-trendy coat! You win this round ma!

 

No.2-  ‘ALWAYS WEAR SUNSCREEN’

‘Tis a lesson we must all learn for ourselves, however looking like a lobster boiled in it’s bikini is no one’s definition of aesthetics-on-point…and besides, no-one wants to age like a leather bag! Run and tell that!

Mum: II
Me: 0

No.3 – ‘DON’T FROWN, YOU’LL GET WRINKLES’

SadBabyCronulla

It was all fun and games til we saw that frown line in the mirror and it was PERMANENT! Dang it mum, right again!

Mum: III
Me: 0

 

No.4- ‘INVEST IN COMFORTABLE SHOES’

A staggering baby giraffe in Louboutins does not a fashion icon make. If you can’t walk in them like you are walking off a yacht, leave them on the shelf!

Mum: IIII
Me: 0

 

No. 5- ‘EAT YOUR VEGETABLES’ 

Scurvy is still a thing…it’s did not get left in 1788 with Captain Cook! Eat yo veges, errrrry day! Preach!

Pssst, one day you’ll grow to love them!

 

No. 6- ‘APPRECIATE LIVING AT HOME, YOU’LL MISS IT ONE DAY!’ 

So, we learned the hard way dishes don’t do themselves and the magic dinner fairy isn’t a thing. Enjoy it while it lasts and don’t forget to say thank you!

 

No. 7- ‘LET IT GO’

Let it go Cronulla

All we can hear is the theme song from Frozen, but Mama was right. Let it go. Nobody like Grudgy Gertrude! Let go of anything that no longer serves you. That dead-end job, toxic relationship or bad burrito!

 

No. 8- ‘SCHOOL DAYS ARE THE HAPPIEST DAYS OF YOUR LIFE’

School Cronulla

Yep, remember that one time we got to hang out with friends all day, have our lunches packed for us and there was no such thing as bills, night shift or rent? It wasn’t so bad after all.

 

No. 9- ‘A FULL NIGHTS’ SLEEP DOES WONDERS’

Kids Cronulla

Yes mum, yes it does.

 

No. 10 – ‘LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER’

Mum was right Cronulla

And now we see the light!

Say thanks this mother’s day!
