Our Mom & Me blog will be all things creative, time-saving, and contributing to our well-being. The backdrop is the very special bond between moms and their kids. Even more specifically the uber complicated and beautiful mom & daughter “loveship.” I do think the love of a mom is the closest thing to pure agape love. Since I wish my mommy was here to see us open our first kids’ salon and she is the inspiration for the name of our blog . . . I thought there was no better way to kick this thing off than talking about things ‘Mama used to say’. To keep this fun, I am sharing many of my mom’s quick sayings she said to me over the years. She was/is wise, real, and funny – so get ready! This blog (and all of them) are for you Mom! Boy do we miss you, but I hear these and many more ‘mama adages’ in my head and heart all the time. See you are here to see this after all because you are me and I am you. . .

Be proud of what you see when you look in the mirror

God had a sense of humor with all of us

A dog that will bring a bone will take one

Character is what you do when no one is looking

Do dirt by yourself

Everything that is done in the dark will come to the light

I would not keep telling that lie over and over again. (3rd,4th marriages)

A hit dog will holla

When you leave, she leaves (a woman in your house)

Today Is The First Day Of The Rest Of Your Life

The young people say — “Real Talk.” Now that’s some real talk! Thanks, Mom
