What My Kids Have Taught Me

Oliver Inn 016


I’ve been a Mommy for 10 years.  Long enough to know

  • My girls can easily divide and conquer me and their Dad if we let them. 
  • Every day is a new challenge
  • I will never cook like my Mom
  • I could never put enough helmets, knee pads, elbow pads or safety glasses on my kids to keep them from being hurt
  • My kids are awesome, but other people’s kids are awesome too
  • There are no easy answers
  • It’s never too early to teach them about character and integrity
  • I often do the wrong thing.  Saying sorry to my kids is invaluable
  • There are other Mom’s and Dad’s that are way smarter than me.  I try to learn all I can from great parents
  • My parents did so many things right.  I hope I do too.

    Yes…all of these things are awesome. Saying sorry is something that never happened in our house when I was a kid. That’s a very important one for me.
    Your girls are amazing. I saw Belle last night & she put on a little dance / entertainment show through the window. Cute, cute, cute.
