I love my kids, but like I've told them, "I am not your friend, I am your parent. You HAVE friends. Too many kids have parents who want to be their friend, when what they really need is for their parents to act like PARENTS." My kids soo agree.
Family quote - You will never have this day with your children again. Today is a gift. Breathe and notice. Study their little faces and feet. Relish the charms of the present. Enjoy today mama, it will be gone before you know it.
