My Favourites! Quotes and Pictures

Today I'm linking up over at Ado's, The Momalog for a very cool online baby shower for Alison over at Mama Wants This.  She's due the first week of May with her second baby boy!  So exciting.  I wish you the best of luck Alison!  Two boys bring loads of craziness, chaos and FUN.  Bring on the superhero costumes!

Our task from Ado was to choose our favourite baby picture and quote about Motherhood. (Ado already stole my quote but I'm gonna use it anyway).  Jackie Kennedy said it best.  I remember reading this quote in one of her biography's.  It was before I was even married with children but it was like a light bulb (bing!) went off in my head when I read it.  It has stuck with me ever since.

"If you bungle raising your children, I don't think whatever else you do well matters very much."

I also read a wonderful sentence just the other day that made me feel so much better about what I'm doing as a Mother (frankly most days I don't know what the hell I AM doing as a Mother).  I wish I knew who it was, to give them credit for this, but they just said it was something that an older mother had said to them at one time.  Cheers to that older mother wherever she is!

"Motherhood is only hard when you're doing it right." Amen to that.

I couldn't decide on just one picture and didn't want to seem like I was favouriting one over the other - so I chose a favourite picture of each of my boys. Gotta be fair.  And all's fair in love and Motherhood or something like that.  (not really but anyway).

Adrian at 8 months.  Do you see why I call him angel face?

Finley at just over a year and a half.  Delicious.

Those are some beautiful children!

And you're right, parenthood can be easy or difficult, depending on how much effort you put into it.

Before I was a mom, I said the same thing about teaching!

OMG ---> YES I see why you call Adrian Angel-Face. Wow. (Love his name by the way, have I mentioned that?)
I'm so glad you kept your Jackie quote and I love that quote - motherhood is only hard when you're doing it right. Wow, that will help me so much in future.
Thank you for linking up my friend. (-:

Yes, I see the angel in both of your beautiful babies. Just gorgeous. Love the quotes. Hard to follow up in the comments after those. They pretty much say all there is to say about being a mom. Glad to see you at the shower!

Beautiful children. They ARE angelic indeed. They looked like they could have been model babies in magazines or those ones that you see in frames when you buy them at the store.

And those two quotes. Love. I'll have to memorize them. Thanks!
