Mum of three shares a letter to her children dropping a few home truths that we can all take a lesson from.
Fiona Coble from Rock Star Mums Drink Champagne is a busy mum to Maclean 10, Molly 8 and Memphis 7. She has shared some words of wisdom that we can actually all relate to and we thought you would appreciate reading.
A letter of truth bombs to my kids.
“Dearest Children of mine,
Here’s a few things I really need you to know:
Submitting your rating…
EVERYTHING IN LIFE NEEDS TO BE EARNED.
This includes respect, friendship and loyalty. You need to work hard in school and in life to receive these things.
YOU DON’T GET AN AWARD FOR EVERYTHING YOU DO
Putting out the garbage, not peeing on the toilet seat or participating in a sport are things that you should do without expectation.
These are things that build character and will make you a decent little human.
If you want an award, do something amazing and Mum will give you an extra big hug.
ALWAYS BE KIND
Kindness is contagious and feeling good comes from giving away free samples of your beautiful nature.
If kids are a-holes to you or your friends, be resilient and protect your heart.
Just understand there’s something in these kids that make them sad enough to be mean to others. Feel sorry for them and step away.
I know you won’t believe it, but one day their heart will understand the word regret.
Get the words “I can’t” out of your mind.
Indeed you might not be able to, but unless you really give it a try how will you know?
You might even surprise yourself.
DANCE AND SING
It doesn’t matter if you have no rhythm or sound like a dying cat. It’s never stopped your parents and you know how happy we are when we rock out in the kitchen!
Have fun by yourself and when there’s people watching.
KNOW THAT YOUR MUM AND DAD WILL ALWAYS DO THE BEST WE CAN FOR YOU
You might not have the fanciest clothes, biggest house or European holidays… but know you’ll be loved with two ridiculously ferocious hearts for the rest of your life.
Not a bad thought hey?
Now for the fifth time, go and clean your room before mummy loses her sh*t!
