"It's a moon, Mommy!"


In light of the season and the buy-buy-buy mentality that we all feel we have to do for our kids, here are some quotes to keep us focused on what our children really need and want:

*Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children. ~Charles R. Swindoll

*You will always be your child's favorite toy. ~Vicki Lansky

*Kids spell love T-I-M-E. ~John Crudele

*In bringing up children, spend on them half as much money and twice as much time. ~Author Unknown

And then when you have spent enough time with your kids:

*The one thing children wear out faster than shoes is parents. ~John J. Plomp

Have a happy Thursday!

Love the quotes. I agree. One of the greatest gifts we can give to our children is a memorable childhood filled with scents of home and the color of life!
Love your ideas as usual!
