Socrates Quotes

If someone told you that you only had exactly 9 minutes to live, what would you do in those 9 minutes?

Well put parenting advice!

It’s impossible to prepare for parenthood. Yes you can anticipate the sleepless nights, the constant vigilance on kids as they grow, making sure they are safe, healthy and happy. Easy stuff. But who can honestly anticipate the acute heart break that eventually settles in your soul as these babies turn into little adults, and learn how to navigate the world.

That I know if can overcome. But, it still hurts.
