SMILE AWHILE
I don't think I'll ever have a mother's intuition. My sister left me alone in a restaurant with my 10-month old nephew. I said, "What do I do if he cries?"
She said, "Give him some vegetables." It turns out that jalapeno is not his favorite.

FUTURE BUSINESSMAN
"Thanks for the harmonica you gave me for my birthday," little Joshua said to his uncle. "It's the best present I ever got." "That's great," said his uncle. "Do you know how to play it?" "Oh, I don't play it," the little fellow replied. "My mom gives me a dollar a day not to play it during the day and my dad gives me five dollars a week not to play it at night!"
***********************************
LAWS OF LIFE:
* Murphy's First Law for Wives: If you ask your husband to pick up five items at the store and then you add one more as an afterthought, he will forget two of the first five.
* Kauffman's Paradox of the Corporation: The less important you are to the corporation, the more your tardiness or absence is noticed.
* The Salary Axiom: The pay raise is just large enough to increase your taxes and just small enough to have no effect on your take-home pay.
* Miller's Law of Insurance: Insurance covers everything except what happens.
* First Law of Living: As soon as you start doing what you always wanted to be doing, you'll want to be doing something else.
* Weiner's Law of Libraries: There are no answers, only cross-references.
* The Grocery Bag Law: The candy bar you planned to eat on the way home from the market is hidden at the bottom of the grocery bag.
* Lampner's Law of Employment: When leaving work late, you will go unnoticed. When you leave work early, you will meet the boss in the parking lot.

POINTS TO PONDER
The only time you make a mistake is when you don't learn from it.
I'd like to be the ideal mother, but I'm too busy raising my kids.
A mother can touch a whole generation just by loving her own child well.
Mothers are guinea pigs in a scientific experiment to prove that sleep is unnecessary for human existence.
I've had amnesia for as long as I can remember.

YOU KNOW YOU'VE TURNED INTO A MOM WHEN...
~ You automatically double-knot everything you tie.
~ You find yourself humming the Wiggles song as you do the dishes.
~ You hear a baby cry in the grocery store, and you start to gently sway back and forth, back and forth. However, your children are at school!
~ You actually start to like the smell of strained carrots mixed with applesauce.
~ You weep through the scene in Dumbo when his mom is taken away, not to mention what Bambi does to you.
~ You get soooo into crafts you contemplate writing a book called "101 Fun Crafts To Do with Dryer Lint and Eggshells."
~ You spend a half hour searching for your sunglasses only to have your teenager say, "Mom, why don't you wear the ones you pushed up on your head?"
~ You are out for a nice romantic meal with your husband, enjoying some real adult conversation, when suddenly you realize that you've reached over and started to cut up his steak.
