This sweet photograph of my son and I was taken by Sydnie Michele, a most talented photographer in New York City. It reminds me every day of what parenting is really about: that our job is simply to give a bit of gentle support and impart some practical wisdom to these little people to help guide their way. With Mother’s Day just around the corner (Sunday, May 9), we thought it would be perfect to celebrate it by taking a moment to think about and share those lessons — big or small — that our Mothers taught us.
Whether it be the way she modeled good behavior and polite manners, or the way she taught you to make a bed properly (with military-style corners, in my Mom’s case!) … or never to wear white shoes before Easter … let’s face it, we know what we know in large part because of Mom!
Share with us your most important Lesson From Mom by submitting a comment below, and on Tuesday, May 4th we’ll select a winner from all the comments submitted. The person submitting the winning Lesson will receive two sets of Wooster & Prince Monogram Stationery … one for you and one for your Mom!

The photograph above of my son (7 months old at the time) and I was taken by Sydnie Michele. Sydnie and her partner, Stephen Salmieri came to our Soho loft and spent an entire day photographing the most precious little moments I shared with him. Sydnie and Stephen also shot the same “day of photographs” for my first son as well and today I have an entire wall of these images. They are absolutely priceless to me.
