Point & Shoot - what my mother taught me

In my day to day life, I come across little things that make me stop and think about where and how I learnt to do a particular thing.

Like this morning for example, it was a normal morning. Wake up to the sound of the kids playing in their rooms.  Get up, make kindy lunch for Mitchell and pour myself and the little ones a nice warm drink to to start the day.  Drop Mitchell at Kindy, watch him cry for me at the fence as I drive off. (it lasts until I am out of sight and then he is happy).  Arrive home, put Liam down for his morning nap and get stuck into some housework.

Mitchell's favourite sheets
Today it was change sheets day.  I was in the middle of making the beds after stripping them
and I had started tucking the sheets underneath the mattress with a hospital corner.  It was then that I stopped and pondered where I had learnt this and why of why must I do hospital corners every.single.time.  If Quentin makes the bed, I go back and fold the corners my way.  In my eyes, there is only one way. Hospital corners all the way.

Hospital Corners...your sheets stay put with corners like these!

I know exactly where I learnt this and it is one of the many things that my beautiful Mother instilled in me from an early age.  My mum has taught me many things and this is just one of them.  I am sure I will teach my kids too...when they are old enough to make their beds!

What did your mum teach you?....

  1. I don't know how to do them, but I must have a made bed before I get in it, even if I haven't made it all day, I have to just before I get in!
