It’s only tuesday y’all.  I’m in need of some major parenting motivation. I’m currently stuck under two sweet sleeping boys, thank god they finally fell asleep.  I cleaned the living room today as Oli destroyed the playroom and Milo ate a roll of toilet paper because I thought he was asleep.   So I’m googling parenting wisdom and word swagging my favorites.    I thought I’d send you some too!

“Be who you needed when you were young”  Unknown Parenting Quote

“Respect your kids.  Too many adults demand respect from kids without showing any respect in return.  It doesn’t work.”  Lyle Perry

While I have your attention, you should go check out my favorite parenting books.   With a little wisdom and coffee, we can make it to friday together.  I’m in desperate need of some wise mom blogs to add to my reading list, any recommendations?

There are some wise parenting quotes on BrainyQuote.  Which one is your favorite?

I think I will google family quotes next.  How sweet is this one?   “Family is not an important thing. It’s everything.”   Michael J. Fox
