Megyn Kelly’s Mom Shares Parenting ‘Lessons From Linda’ | Megyn Kelly TODAY

>>> TODAY, IN HONOR OF MOTHER'S DAY WEEK, WE BEGIN A SERIES CALLED "LESSONS FROM LINDA" LINDA IS MY MOTHER AND SHE'S NEVER AT A LOSS FOR WORDS

>> I LOVE BEING NORMAL OR KID-LIKE WITH THEM YOU KNOW, I DIDN'T EXACTLY GO OUT AND PLAY KICK THE CAN WITH THEM BUT I JUST — WE PLAYED A LOT OF GAMES, SILLY GAMES AT THE TABLE AND LAUGHED A LOT WHEN I WENT TO WORK, MY HAPPINESS WAS THERE I LOVED MY JOB

I NEVER REGRETTED BEING A NURSE EVER THERE'S THE GOOD ME, THE BAD ME AND THE NOT ME AND THE WORSE THING IS THE NOT ME I DON'T ANY YOU CAN BE ANYTHING UNLESS YOU'RE HONEST WITH YOURSELF YOU DON'T TRY TO KID ANYBODY AND YOU KNOW YOU'RE CENTERED

WHEN I HAD HER, WHICH WAS IN THE '70s, THE NAME MEGYN HAD JUST BECOME POPULAR AFTER SHE WAS BORN AND DOING THE PAPERWORK, THEY SAID, HOW DO YOU SPELL THAT? OH, GOD I NEVER SAW IT IN PRINT I SAID, THINK, LINDA I REMEMBERED THAT I WAS IN O

B AND GYNECOLOGY I WAS A NURSE OBGYN I SAID MEGYN

THAT'S HOW SHE GOT IT IT WAS A GOOD TIME TO DISCIPLINE THEM THEY DIDN'T HAVE THEIR OWN TV THEY DIDN'T HAVE THEIR OWN TELEPHONE THERE WERE NO COMPUTERS THEN

IT WAS A PUNISHMENT PUTTING THEM IN THEIR ROOM LATER ON, WHEN THEY HAD THOSE THINGS, IT WAS A PUNISHMENT THEY HAD TO SAY WITH US I WAS NOT HAPPY WHEN WE HAD THE EMPTY NEST I WAS FREE AS A BIRD IT WAS AMAZING

I CRIED THE FIRST TIME WE LEFT OFF MY FIRST DAUGHTER IN COLLEGE I DID CRY
