Our moms teach us a lot! Like so much of what we know. And, even though it takes us until we are like 20, or even parents ourselves, we eventually see that!
So, yeah, thanks mom.
One thing that was stressed to us was healthy eating and drinking. We had an understanding of labels on foods before most of our friends. We had home cooked meals for almost all of our meals (even hot homemade lunches at school). And, because of this, my sister and I know how to cook and eat healthy as adults (that’s not to say we don’t enjoy some Cheetos or candy every now and then). But, we understand it. And, we pass that along to our children.
We also learned how important it is to stay hydrated. We spent most weekend on a boat either fishing or water skiing…in the hot, Texas sun. She always stressed the importance of drinking a lot of water (we almost never had soda or other sugary drinks and those didn’t truly hydrate).
When we drove to Disney World, I made sure we packed a ton of bottled water, so we never were thirsty (although, turns out, you can ask for a cup of ice water anywhere and they will gladly give it to you!)
Thankfully, we all stayed hydrated and nobody got heat stroke or sick! (I’ve had it before…it’s not fun. And, firefighters freak out when they start to see the symptoms. So, DON’T LET IT HAPPEN!)
The Hydration Movement On The Nestlé® Pure Life® Facebook Page is asking fans to take a simple online pledge to drink more water. They can also enter a sweepstakes for a chance to win prizes and share their own wisdom through the Facebook mosaic.(ETA: Just found out this doesn’t start until next month).
Head over and Hydrationshare some wisdom shared by your mother!
