There is a time to treasure every fleeting minute of their childhood. Just eighteen precious years to inspire and train them. We will not exchange this birthright for a mess of pottage called social position, or business success or professional reputation. An hour of concern today may save years of heartache tomorrow, the house will Carry on!
I’m planning a mother blessing (some say Blessingway, but please don’t call it that.) for a dear friend and am thinking about birth–babies–blessings…I’m getting so excited. I hope tomorrow will be as meaningful and wonderful as I am striving towards. I’ll give you a sneak peek (identifying details changed, of course) (Isn’t that the sweetest Carry on!
Yes, I know we just washed the window, but making your breath appear on it is so cool, and you have to touch it in order to see properly. Even though that floor has just been mopped, it’s no big deal that you dripped pumpkin cookie dough all over; I love that you’re helping. It’s Carry on!

Or at least your back yard. Have you heard of this lady? That’s Lenore Skenazy. She got “in trouble” a while back for letting her nine year old son ride the NYC subway by himself. You can watch a clip of the “much ado” if you like. Since then, she has written a book and Carry on!
Well, it’s 2:20 a.m. Yes. I was so exhausted, that after nursing Cadrian and putting him to bed at 7, (yes, seven) I lay down for a bit and woke up after 11. And now I’m still awake. Nice, huh? Seeings how it’s the middle of the night, what better time for some philosophical ramblings?Sit Carry on!
I just finished reading Don’t Make Me Count to Three! by Ginger Plowman. I was nosing around on her website and found she has a no more whining kit. Good idea. Her plan is pretty much this: 1-Tell your child you love them too much to speak like that. 2-Tell them they may come back Carry on!
