Southern mamas are near and dear to our hearts, and Mother's Day is one of many days that we love to celebrate the strong, powerful women in our lives – from grandmas, to mothers, to daughters. One of the country's most famous daughters, Jenna Bush Hager, is now a Southern mama herself – and there are few things that she's learned along the way. The mother of two young girls, Mila and Poppy, Jenna's had her fair share of learning curves with motherhood that we can all relate to, like watching our words and actions (which our kids will inevitably mimic). We sat down with the Dallas, Texas native and Southern Living Editor-At-Large to chat about all things Mother's Day: why she loves being a mom, what advice she'd share with other mothers, and what she hopes to pass on from her own mother. Jenna also shared some stories of her own childhood, and what she loved most about having former First Lady Laura Bush as her mother (hint – Laura loves music!).
