Children...

"Children have never been very good at listening to their elders,but they have never failed to imitate them." - James Baldwin

I was just thinking about how much responsibility it is to raise our children...sometimes its an overwhelming thought for me. How true it is that its not so much what you say...but what you DO that matters. Children are so observant, and mine remind me of this almost daily. "But you said that mom..." Uh oh. I have to say, it keeps me on my toes!
Here are some more quotes I found about children:

"Children really brighten up a household.They never turn the lights off." - Ralph Bus
"Having children makes you no more a parent than having a piano makes you a pianist" - Michael Levine

Never a truer word was spoken! I've always told my daughter, 'don't do as you've heard mummy has done, do as mummy tells you to do!' LOL Hope you're having a lovely week sweetie!
