Being a parent-one of the things, you have to do is laugh, sometimes instead of crying, it’s best to laugh. My sister always tells me to “keep it in perspective” when I am having a mom “moment” because I think the worst but always hope for the best.  I wanted to share some of the funniest quotes that I have heard regarding parenting.  Hope you enjoy!

Parenting is so many things but for me It’s all that I have learned from my son, to be more.  I have to tell you though, through this journey, I have had to learn to laugh at myself a lot.  Plus, I have learned to be more patience and I think these quotes highlight some of the things all parents go through.  Sharing your thoughts to other parents I find is beneficial.  We laugh at our mistakes and talk through how to do better the next time.  Find other parents willing to laugh and help through this mad life of raising children.
