Memo to Mommy

Today I was sitting in the waiting room of the doctor's office and of course, they were running behind so I decided to pick up an edition of Parent's Magazine. I flipped to a page and found a few quotes of what a baby would say to their mommy. It was entitled "Memo to Mommy". I thought it was cute so I snapped a picture with my Iphone (I wouldn't dare rip the page out!) and decided to share some of them with you!!

"Stop freaking out about the mess!" There's always time to clean--but how often do we get to make mud pies!?"

"Love me, even when I'm naughty. I'll only be this age once"

"Be patient. I do everything for a reason, but I don't know enough words yet to give you an explanation"

"Let me do it. I know that you can do it faster and better but sometimes experience is the best teacher."

"I want to do what you ask and make you happy, but I'm still little."

"Don't try reasoning with me when I'm having a tantrum. Trust me--I cant hear you over my own screaming."

"Keep your promises. It's all about trust. When I'm a teenager, you'll understand why it's so important."

"Don't let me think that you're perfect. I feel a lot better knowing I'm not the only one who makes mistakes sometimes."

"Set limits. I can't actually eat a whole box of cookies--I just want to see if I can get away with it!"

It was just nice to see that with as much as we try to teach our children--there are a couple things we could learn & understand as well!! :)

I love this! I actually have a free subscription to PARENTS thanks to my Boppy pillow, but it was fun to read this again.
