      1. I know! It is… but kids have a way of stealing your heart and running away with it. My oldest is almost 16. She’s in that phase where she hates me… 😢. We will get through it! 😀

  1. As a retired teacher, many of these quotes hit home for me. The thing I like best about children is their unfiltered and unbridled joy. I’ve always maintained that adults should take a lesson from kids in watching how they make up with each other. There is no such thing as carrying a grudge when it comes to young children. They can move past just about any problem because they just want to be friends again.

There was somebody that reviewed it saying he got if for his children (of course he was trolling), because children in general “are noise, spit in the floor, and curse a lot,” so he got it to have a respite from them, The children in your chronicles are very tender, fragglerocking. I was a headache when I had their age xD
