My mom is my best friend; she always has been. She has always been a great listener, and full of awesome advice.
"Be kind to others, and always treat them how YOU want to be treated"
These are words that were spoken often by my mother while I was growing up. If I came home from school upset because of a spat with my friends, or something that happened. This was her advice. These are the same words that I try and instill into MY children.

Our fridge was always filled with yummy food and a jug of water. Even now, with my brother and I out of the house she keeps a pitcher of water in the fridge. Whenever we (or her grandkids) would complain of being thirsty, she would always offer us "fresh and tasty water" - because "water is the best thing for you to drink". She drilled into us the importance of staying hydrated, not only for the body but for the mind too. It is something that stuck, and at home I do the same with my boys. We have milk and juice in the fridge also, but my go to drink for myself and kids is water. I find having cold water in the fridge helps in keeping the kids hydrated.
Become a fan of Nestlé® Pure Life® on Facebook and stay tuned for the launch of this year’s Hydration Movement in late July! Nestlé® Pure Life® will continue to focus on healthy hydration, while also embracing Mom’s Wisdom – sharing and discovering all of the little things that moms have shared over the generations that make our lives better. And one thing all moms can agree on is that it’s important to keep the family healthy, hydrated and happy.
This year, Nestlé® Pure Life® is asking fans to take a simple online pledge to drink more water. They can also enter a sweepstakes for a chance to win prizes and share their own wisdom through the Facebook mosaic.
So let's hear it - what are your mom's words of wisdom? Funny or serious - I would love to hear them.
