30 Things my kids should know about me Day 4: List 10 things you would tell your 16 year-old self.

I wasn’t 16 in either of these photos but it was the best I could find on Facebook.

 10. In a couple of years you’re going to college. Enjoy it.
9. I know you want to be a newscaster but perhaps you should seriously consider engineering.
8. Keep in touch with your closest friends and continue to build lasting relationships with people you trust.
7.  High school boyfriends are overrated.
6. Stay focused, avoid distractions.
5. You’re going to love being a mother even more than you can imagine.
4. Don’t buy a house before 2008.
3. Buy Apple stock.
2. Take cooking lessons asap, you’ll regret it if you don’t.
1. Don’t worry, everything is going to be ok.

What would you tell your 16-year-old self?

Cute pictures! Hmm, I married my high school boyfriend so #7 is really funny! As an engineer number #9 is ironic because I always wish I had taken the chance on something artsy…but then I remember I have no talent!

I would tell my 16 year old self to stop worrying about being “too skinny” and trying to gain weight (yeah, you read that right!) because when you turn 30 and have a baby metabolism will kick in and you will regret it!

Oh also, don’t teach yourself how to apply makeup…take a class or ask for help!
