note to self

Posted on: 18 October 2011

I don’t want to be that kind of mother.

You know, the kind who takes herself too seriously.

The best parenting advice I’ve ever come across to date goes something like, “treat your child as if s/he were the seventh of ten children.” That’s what I want, I think – perspective.

My own mother is seventh out of ten. Not sure if that advice helped my own grandparents much 😛

The only parents I know who take themselves too seriously are ones in THIS generation 😛
