Food For Thought

We all love our children, but have to admit being a parent is the most challenging job ever held. 
Here are some light-hearted quotes that might let you see things from a new prospective and make you smile at the same time…

"Heredity is what sets the parents of a teenager wondering about each other."
—Laurence J. Peter


"Children are the most expensive form of entertainment."
—Mihaela Iosof


"Adorable children are considered to be the general property of the human race. Rude children belong to their mothers."
—Judith Martin

"The best time to give advice to your children is while they’re still young enough to believe you know what you’re talking about."

"Any astronomer can predict with absolute accuracy just where every star in the universe will be at 11:30 tonight. He can make no such prediction about his teenage daughter."
—James T. Adams

  "A father is someone who carries pictures where his money used to be."


"A thoughtful kid is one who leaves enough gas in the tank for you to get to the filling station."


"Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing."
—Phyllis Diller


"You know your children have grown up when they stop asking you where they came from and refuse to tell you where they are going."


"Raising a kid is part joy and part guerilla warfare."
—Ed Asner


"Home is a place where teenagers go to refuel."


"Like all parents, my husband and I just do the best we can, and hold our breath, and hope we’ve set aside enough money to pay for our kids’ therapy."
—Michelle Pfeiffer


"It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snowblower or vacuum cleaner."
—Ben Bergor


And last but not least, my personal favorite:


 "Life was so much easier when your clothes didn’t match and boys had cooties!"

    I don\’t have kids of my own but by hearing my brother\’s talk and listening to the stories my mom tells, these are all right on the mark. The only one I can relate to is the one about the adorable vs rude children. Thanks for a good laugh …  I can laugh until I do have kids (if I ever do).

    Great quotes and mostly quite true.  I liked number four the best as it sounded like something my sister told me while I was having a fit about not knowing how to be a father.  She said, "Don\’t worry.  They don\’t know that you\’ve never been a parent before."Peace, Doc
