Children



"If nature had arranged that husbands and wives should have children alternatively, there would never be more than three in a family."  ~Lawrence Housman


"If I had my child to raise all over again,
I'd build self-esteem first, and the house later.
I'd finger-paint more, and point the finger less.
I would do less correcting and more connecting.
I'd take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.
I'd take more hikes and fly more kites.
I'd stop playing serious, and seriously play.
I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars.
I'd do more hugging and less tugging."
~Diane Loomans

"Ma-ma does everything for the baby, who responds by saying Da-da first."  ~Mignon McLaughlin

 "A child enters your home and for the next twenty years makes so much noise you can hardly stand it.  The child departs, leaving the house so silent you think you are going mad."  ~John Andrew Holmes

"If you have never been hated by your child you have never been a parent."  ~Bette Davis
