Ten Things About Parenting

Here's my tongue in cheek take on parenting. Enjoy! And please let me know I'm not the only one who's often worn out by the monumental task of parenting but loves my kids to infinity and beyond. ;-)

Ten Things I Wish I'd Known About Parenting

1) Three year olds really do think they rule the world.

2) So do tweens.

3) Mommies really can take a nap and the world will not self-destruct.

4) Pet fish aren't flushable; they must be buried.

5) Chocolate is a food group.

6) Children can be reasoned with and will be long as there's chocolate involved.

7) A piece of chocolate not only makes the medicine go down, but also peas, broccoli, and carrots too.

8) Subtle hints will be categorically ignored.

9) As "the baby" grows up, moms learn how to cry and cheer at the same time.

10) That the same instruction can be repeated ad nauseam and still be ignored...but somehow they really do "get it." Eventually.

For those of you who don't know "the rest of the story" here's a little bit about me... Amy is married to a hunk, a homeschool mom of 3, writer, youth Bible study
leader, and avid chocoholic. Those are some of the hats she loves to wear,
but who Amy really is can be summed up in this: Amy is a daughter of the
King learning to live and love with laughter.
