The Art of Mothering is to Teach the Art of Living to Children -Elaine Heffner

The art of mothering is to teach the art of living to children. – Elaine Heffner

Such a great quote and so true! It's easy to forget in the rush, rush of everyday life, but kids learn so much about the art of living from their parents. I think this quote is one that I need to print out and tape up in my kitchen or something as a reminder. There is a lot I could do differently.

Or maybe it was the rainbow unicorn shirt you had your eye on?
