As a Mom, I’ve shared many words of wisdom with my kids…like “Don’t run with a pencil in your mouth,” or “Look both ways before crossing the street.” As they grew, I wish I’d had some advice that could help them avoid the pitfalls of life, but I couldn’t catch up with them long enough to impart those gems, and they might have ignored me had I tried.
Kristine Kohut is the author of a fun and insightful book with a catchy title: Big Toe People. I highly recommend it! She and her husband Steve adopted two adorable boys a few years ago. I hope they read their mom’s nuggets when they’re older, and I hope our grown kids read them, too. In fact, these nuggets are for all of us! She said what’s in my heart much better than I could have.
Look, Mom! Wisdom!
