Thirteen Thursday - Motherhood

Principles of Motherhood 

  1. Motherhood ~~ If it was going to be easy, it never would have started with something called labor!
  2. Avenge yourself ~~ Live long enough to be a problem to your children.
  3. The right temperature in a home is maintained by warm hearts, not by hot heads.
  4. The joy of motherhood: What a woman experiences when all the children are finally in bed.
  5. Any child can tell you that the sole purpose of a middle name is so he can tell when he's really in trouble.
  6. A child outgrows your lap, but never outgrows your heart.
  7. There are three ways to get something done: Do it yourself, hire someone to do it, or forbid your children to do it.
  8. You know the only people in this world who are always sure about the proper way to raise children? Those who've never had any.
  9. Cleaning your house while your kids are at home is like trying to shovel the driveway during a snowstorm.
  10. There are only two things a child will share willingly: communicable diseases and his mother's age.
  11. An alarm clock is a device for awakening people who don't have small children.
  12. Shouting to make your children obey is like using the horn to steer your car, and you get about the same results.
  13. To be in your children's memories tomorrow, you have to be in their lives today.
