What My Kids Taught Me about Life



  • Kids lower the standard for your amazement. Before you had kids, you were hard to impress. Once you have a child, you act like no other child has ever walked, talked, or pooped before.
  • Insanity is hereditary. You inherit it from your kids. 
  • Kids keep you really young…like wanting to take a nap! 
  • They wear you out but energize you at the same time.
  • They are like sponges. They reflect both the good and the bad in us.
  • They make you feel love like you never have felt.
  • They worry you, make you angry, break your heart, and frustrate you but never in a million years would you ever trade the life that you have with them.
  • Whenever you are really proud of them, they are probably getting ready to embarrass you.
  • They are truly a gift from God.
  • They are not perfect…but then again, neither are you.
  • You can never afford them, and they cost way more than you ever thought they would, but they are worth every penny and a whole lot more.
  • They often stray…but they come back.
  • You should never give up on them.
  • When you get frustrated about poop diapers, spilled milk, handprints on the walls, broken furniture, broken rules, teenage angst, bad attitudes, bad grades, bad choices, lights left on, bed rooms not cleaned, loud music, late nights, weird styles, and all that goes with being a parent, just remember that way too soon your house will be empty, and you will long for the noisy, messy days. 
  • Get even with your kids by spending their inheritance now!
