Jamie Morrison Curtis is the author of the fabulous blog (and book), Prudent Advice For My Baby Daughter, and chronicles random pieces of advice for her 2 year old daughter to refer to as she grows up.
“But your blog boasts ‘Advice from your older sister, not your mom,’” you say?!
Well, this is the exception to our rule. Prudent Advice is an advice handbook that every girl should own. Every human, really. Here are some of my fave words of wisdom from the blog, (and my own addendums):
#23 When frustrating things happen, keep them in perspective.
#82 Anytime you are debating whether to shower or not, take the shower. – Seriously.
#71 Guilt is a paralytic emotion.
#92 Righty tighty, lefty loosey.
#116 At the close of each day, fill your head with thoughts of how lucky you are.
#135 When you drop someone off at home wait until he or she gets inside before driving away. – I could have used this piece of advice in high school when I dropped Megan off and drove away…only to have her get locked out of her house on a hot day, with her foot in a cast, and forced to hobble the half mile to my house.
#157 If you want to leave a party and you don’t have a good excuse, spill something on yourself. –Just make sure it’s not hot.
#225 You will get good at anything you practice.
#253 Pay no attention to the line of impossibility.
