Quotes from my boy
"Mama, can you fix my pants? They don't cover my ankles."
“Being a loving parent is work that guarantees the transformation of the ego for in the work of rearing children the limits of your selfishness, need and smallness are continually challenged. Somehow you find within your heart a love that is willing to stretch further and further. In this sense, the work of parenting is profoundly blessed work. Some people pray in words; in the work of raising children, parents pray every day with every fibre of their being.”
John O’Donohue, Beauty: The Invisible Embrace, page 164
"A room without books is like a body without a soul."
G. K. Chesterton
