12 PRINCIPLES OF MOTHERHOOD
1. If motherhood were going to be easy, it never would have started with
something called labor!
2. Shouting to make your children obey is like using the horn to steer your
car. And you get about the same results.
3. The smartest advice on raising children is to enjoy them while they are
still on your side.
4. Avenge yourself—live long enough to be a problem to your children.
5. The best way to keep kids at home is to make the home a pleasant
atmosphere—and to let the air out of the tires.
6. Life’s golden age is when the kids are too old to need babysitters and
too young to borrow the family car.
7. You will save yourself a lot of grief if you think of a curfew as just a
general time to shoot for.
8. There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, hire
someone to do it, or forbid your children to do it.
9. Cleaning your house while your kids are at home is like trying to shovel
the driveway during a snowstorm.
10. The hardest people to convince they’re at the retirement age are children
11. There are only two things a child will share willingly: communicable
diseases and his mother’s age.
12. The only people in this world who are always sure about the proper way
to raise children are those who never had any.
Happy Mother’s Day!
