Just a Thought

Likely as not, the child you can do the least with will do the most to make you proud!

Ok so which one of us girls fits this quote?

GOOD question! I can remember you giving me a really hard time at about the age 12!

Kimi in jr high, when she was at the city with me.

Kati still pretty much gives me a hard time.

So I am still waiting to see who makes me the proudest!

Each one (as you know) is so different and so special! What fun would it be if they weren't all giving you headaches!

Everybody wants attention. Some never grow out of it! Isn't that what it's all about?

your quote here is by Mignon McLaughlin, who surprisingly did have more than one child. (At least I was surprised anyone with more than one child would want to repeat this statement.)

First, she did name one of her sons Joyce...hmmm...probably after the 'Ulysses' novel's author, James Joyce...but still...

She was also quoted to have said, "No one really listens to anyone else, and if you try it for a while you'll see why."

with comments like this post, it's no wonder no one wanted to listen!

It is sad that no one really listens!

Have you experienced "Customer Service" lately?

What needs to be done to make this a better place to be? I am searching for some kind of better me.

Do we need to find the compassion we want, by giving it? (That statement is NOT directed at anyone! Just a suggestion for everyone.)

Maybe I should give up my "Maxine" jokes!
