I was watching one of my favorite shows the other night, Parenthood. There was a fabulous line in the show that, as a parent, I **completely appreciated**...
"Sometimes being the perfect parent isn't worth the blood on the floor."
Wow! Is that great or what?!?! I so-o-o-o GOT it! In my opinion it's right up there with one of my other favorite sayings 'Pick your battles'.
And I'll be honest with you...I heard that quote 'pick your battles' many, many times over the years but never quite understood it. That is until my sweet, adorable, loving children grew into teenagers! Then finally...and quite suddenly...it clicked. I had an 'Aha moment'!
If you're a parent of teens then you'll know exactly what I'm talking about!
Okay...I have to wrap things up here. I have to take my mom to the doctor soon. Hope to have more fun to share...until then,
