A Mom's Random Advice

On any given day, I will rattle off random advice and thoughts to my young teenage daughters and in return, I get the usual blank stare, head tilt, and raised eye brow. But nonetheless, as a Mom, I feel I'm doing my job, as it's not easy to get a word in edgewise these days. This "Quick Reference List" would make a great fridge magnet for anyone with teenage daughters. Feel free to add on to this never-ending list!

  6. I wasn't born under a rock
  7. What are you, five?
  8. I'm not your friend
  9. Be a lady
  10. Your secret is safe with me
  11. Be respectful of your parents and yourself
  12. Get a job
