I know I was raised right when I hear myself typing out these words of advice:
Other: "My life is not fun"
me: "well - do you think your mom and dad had a fun life with all you kids? probably not - you need to remember who we are living for"
me: "That pretty little girl that giggles uncontrollably at your tickles - remember that when you think you're bored"
me: "you have accomplished a lot in that day after she goes to bed"
My parents raised me well and now I can pass that onto my precious angel, Lucy.
I love my job as a Mom.
