The last few days I have felt a bit under the weather... and reading this gave me a good laugh. Hope it gives you one too!

Things I've Learned About Being a Mom by Marilyn Janke

1. You no longer have to lock up your favorite candy stash. Just put it on the stairs under the folded laundry and no one will touch it.

2. I don't have to use a road map-- I can just use the veins on my legs.

3. If I had to choose one voice in the world to have instead of my own, it would be Daddy's.

4. Taking your child to the emergency room is one memorable way to spend Mother's Day.

5. "An object at rest tends to stay at rest" is a law written to describe the contents of your child's bedroom.

6. You don't need glasses to see the weaknesses in your child. Just look in the mirror.

7. I've learned to quickly tell the difference between a good disposable diaper and a bad one.

8. A child's thank-you letter takes 25 times as long to formulate as a Christmas/birthday wish list.

9. There is no use crying over spilled baby cereal on a wicker chair.

10. The people that know best how you should be raising your kids are never free to baby-sit.

11. An Emmy is never more deserved than by a child just asked to clean her room.

12. Fridges were designed because children needed a cardboard box big enough to make a slide or playhouse.

13. Every parent possesses many valuable pieces of artwork that didn't cost them a thing.

14. When you help your children with their math homework, you suddenly realize how little you learned in math.

15. The bags under your eyes do not disappear until at least three years after the birth of your last child.

16. Mothers alone hold the secret recipe for refilling ice-cube trays.

17. Nothing is sweeter than leading your own child to Christ.
