Inspiring quote for the day....

Parenting magazines are perfect for those times when you're not feeling inadequate enough on your own.

Isn't this the truth? I feel inadequate on a daily basis. My mom (bless her heart) buys me Parents magazine subscription every year. Nice and all, but COME ON! First of all (I'll get this one out of the way) Who the heck is a size one after having three kids?? I mean, I know these people exist and all, but show some real life moms in these magazines rather than Super-Model-Pretend-To-Be-Moms!! OK?? And, seriously, let's get some ideas from these magazines that actually work! OH, and I guess my child is slow if they haven't hit the milestone mark that PARENTS magazine has set at the age given, huh? Well, the problem with these magazines are...EVERY child is different. Every one. I have three and each has their own personality, quirks and looks! And you know what? I Thank The Lord for giving me three amazing children, each one unique in their own way. I love each and every one of them, even the slow one (lol! Just teasing!)

I like the new background. How did you do that? I need to meet with you soon my bag is overflowing with clothes. I'm going to have to breakdown and start another one. Its to bad you can't forward your subscription to someone who enjoys those magazines. Or bring them to the doctors office and leave them there.

you had me laughing so hard this morning @ 6:15am. I needed that, my husband gets up and leaves way too early, my daughter was crying between 1~2am!! I really needed that true what you said, every child is different, and I "THANK THE GOOD LORD, FOR ALL OF THERE UNIQUENESS!!"

...and about the "size thing, i am back in the size i was before having kids....but have this annoying loose skin folding over my pants NOW...(so no one is perfect, perfect..LOL!!)

Milestones...BAH! I swear if I worried about those things...well, I'd worry more. You're totally right though, every kid is different.

When my oldest was little I used to tear pages out of magazines and keep them for ideas. I think when we moved I brought them with me but who has time to look at that stuff? :)
