Parenting Realities

I was looking through the Welcome Wednesday Blog Hop. When I came across Undeserving Grace. I was reading through her blog and came to this post. I wanted to share it with you and I hope you will consider jumping over and following her too! I look forward to reading more posts of Tara's. Feel free to let her know if you have anything to add to the list!
My 3 kids!



Parenting realities...
~A baby usually wakes up in the wee-wee hours of the morning.
~A child will not spill on a dirty floor.
~A young child is a noise with dirt on it.
~A youth becomes a man when the marks he wants to leave on the world have nothing to do with tires.
~An unbreakable toy is useful for breaking other toys.
~Avenge yourself; live long enough to be a problem to your children.
~Be nice to your kids, for it is they who will choose your nursing home.
~Celibacy is not hereditary.
~Familiarity breeds children.
~For adult education, nothing beats children.
~God invented mothers because he couldn't be everywhere at once.
~God invented guilt so mothers could be everywhere at once.
~Having children is like having a bowling alley installed in your brain.
~Having children will turn you into your parents.
~If a child looks like his father, that's heredity; if he looks like a neighbor, that's environment.
~If you have trouble getting your children's attention, just sit down and look comfortable.
~Ill-bred children always display their pest manners.
~Insanity is inherited; you get it from your kids.
~It now costs more to amuse a child than it once did to educate his father.
~It rarely occurs to teenagers that the day will come when they'll know as little as their parents.
~Money isn't everything, but it sure keeps the kids in touch.
~Never lend your car to anyone to whom you have given birth.
~One child is often not enough, but two children can be far too many.
~You can learn many things from children... like how much patience you have.
~Summer vacation is a time when parents realize that teachers are grossly underpaid.
~The first sign of maturity is the discovery that the volume knob also turns to the left.
~There are three ways to get things done:
  • do it yourself
  • hire someone to do it
  • forbid your kids to do it
~There would be fewer problems with children if they had to chop wood to keep the television set going.
~Those who say they "sleep like a baby" haven't got one.
~The best thing to spend on your children is time.
