A Bit of Wisdom from the Not-All-That-Wise

These are some things I know:

Chocolate is good for the soul.

Dancing is a natural stage of development - lots of little kids dance before they can even walk very well. (The Not-So-Little-One rocked out to Aretha Franklin in her car seat before she could walk.)

It is possible, with enough scrubbing, to wash that man right out of your hair.

My mother was right every time she said, "Stop that before someone gets hurt." Someone always got hurt.

Sex appeal is not all about physical beauty.

I don't care what the Not-So-Little-One says - not everyone in the 5th grade has a cell phone.

It is the younger sister's job to annoy her older sister.

It is all children's jobs to embarrass their parents in public.

It is a parent's job to retaliate in front of their children's peers.

Everyone should commit to memory one great Italian aria, complete with the full gamut of emotion and range and dynamics, to sing at the top of his/her lungs while driving down the freeway.

Petting a cat is relaxing, right up until the cat turns inside of his skin to bite the heck out of the very hand that is petting him, for no apparent reason.

Dogs don't care what your hair looks like, and they find you fascinating when you are smelly.

It is absolutely possible to rise above one's circumstances.

Children do learn what they live, but what they learn might really surprise you.

Drop me a line and tell me what you know.

Here are a few things that I have learned over the years:

Pregnancy brain is REAL. Multi-tasking while pregnant is next-to-impossible, although can be accomplished in short sessions.

My Life Motto: "Whatever makes you happy." This is from the realization that you can't always please everyone, but when YOU are happy, you have the ability to please as many as will allow you to.

Chocolate is good for the soul, but cookies make a great temporary fix.

There is no such thing as bad music. It's all a matter of personal preference.

Love doesn't make the world go 'round; inertia does. Love makes it worth living in.

You can't live and not love any better than you can love and not live.

Well it's not many, but that is probably why I started the blog with the one about "Pregnancy brain"...Love you miss you need to see you soon!
