Morning Edition - 3/1/06

Ling-Ling, I'm Ready For My Close-Up
Tonight Evelyn M. and I will be taking a trip to the wax museum... I mean, beauty salon....for our koochy-clean-ups. The prep for our ski-trip is in high gear and I've procrastinated once again. So look forward to a non-existent posting today.

On Blast
Learn it for crying-out-loud... If there was one lesson you could permanently imprint in your child's mind to help them cope with the real world, what would that lesson be? Remember, you can only permanently imprint one lesson, so consider your answer carefully!

Keep passin' the open windows...

there was one lesson that I tried to imprint on my sons mind. Moderation. know your limit. I tried to teach my sons that no matter what you do in this life, if you do it in moderation you won't f**k up! no matter what we do. eat, drink, sleep, party, work, make money, sex, love...what eva...if you over due it...you will mess it up. and my sons have come back to me as they matured, and told me...mama you were right. over doing is a sin. I believe it is the biggest sin that you can commit.

wow, tammy! I never thought about that as the one lesson to teach Frankie. I will add that to what I plan to pass on to him.

I would have to say my lesson would be that in life, you can't always get what you want. you will be disappointed sometimes and that's ok but you have to learn how to deal with it and move on. when we never say no to our kids and spoil them rotten and they go into the real world and get disappointed, they don't know how to deal with it and snap and then we are left to clean up the mess that they made or they are angry at us because we weren't truthful with them.

I am trying to teach my children that I would die without them. That way since they are always in my butt and they want to stay that way then they will not do anything stupid. :-)

I would probably instill my kids with the “be true to yourself” line. I feel if my kids are true to themselves they would always do what was right for them and have less regrets throughout their lifetime. Most important though would be that they need to always make sure that I’m alright and that the curse of all Puerto Rican daddy’s before me would be upon them if I would ever need for anything.

If there was one lesson that I could to treat my kids that lesson would be...Trive to be a good unselfish human being......

For me it's my mother's lesson to me which has to this day stayed with me and I have successfully passed it on to my daughter:

"Simpre recuerdate que lo que tu ases a mi no me ase dano el dano te lo ases a tu misma"

English Translation:

"Always Remember that what you do you do not hurt me you hurt yourself" In other words you are accountable for your actions always and if you do the wrong things knowing better you will only hurt yourself not me or anyone else.

So for me, when I got mad at her, wanted to do drugs (and never every did mind you) wanted to smoke I always thought of her words the damage I would do would be to me and it was not worth it. I constantly tell this to my daughter 13 yrs old and her response to me is mom i know that's why i won't do anything to hurt myself because it will affect me and I am smart not dumb.

So I am very happy for those, to me, words of wisdom that my mother told me helped me and I now passed onto my daughter.
