It's time once again for Quotable Sunday! Toni, from A Daily Dose of Toni has this great weekly ritual of posting Favorite Quotes - the quotes that people come up with are very inspiring, so if you haven't had a chance to check out Quotable Sunday, now's your chance! ;) Since today is Mother's Day, of course my quotes are focused on Mothers. I hope all the Mom's out there have a wonderful Mother's Day!
"If you bungle raising your children, I don't think whatever else you do well matters very much."
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
"A mother is not a person to lean on, but a person to make leaning unnecessary."

"Making a decision to have a child--it's momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body."

"Mother - that was the bank where we deposited all our hurts and worries."
T. DeWitt Talmage
"There is only one pretty child in the world, and every mother has it."
"When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child."

This random conversation took place yesterday I had to share:
Princess Nagger: "Every day should be Mother's Day!"
Me: "Why do you say that?"
PN: "Well, every day is Mother's Day for me, because you're my mother and I love you!"
Me: "Awwwww! That's so sweet!"
PN: "So Happy Mother's Day and I love you!"
