I am a huge fan of dressing the part so why is it that I also say be comfy? Am I crazy? My Mom set the example by dressing the part and eventually I followed suit. Nevertheless she let us be teens...she let us be comfy and experiment.
I love libraries. Maybe that's because back in the day we actually had to go to a library to look books up and study. My brother studied the parking lot, his friends, and life. Watching him, working with him taught me some valuable lessons. As promised how his grades affected me the girl who studied.
We all know it, be strict, be consequent. Easier said than done. I was never sure until last night how true this story was. I have heard it so many times and thought maybe it was a family urban legend. My Mom wins the prize in consequence and was a master of making her point. Read and be inspired about how a mother of eleven made her point and for years she had less work because of one simple action. I don't think I would have pulled this off but man I have respect for her. By the time I came around I didn't need to test things, I heard the stories and knew and I would have never dared. My older brothers and sisters paved the way, got punished, I learned and this legend came to be.
