Post these rules at the end of every meme!


  1. Donna, you're a lot like me, except for one thing. I found that after I'd exhausted all I knew to do with my kids, it paid to ask somebody who had never had any. They actually have a fresher insight, and their idea s are often very good. They've never tried something that doesn't work. I found what didn't work with one I didn't try with another, and it was the very thing they needed. However, unasked advice is nearly always a slam, even from one I admire and respect. I wonder how I would react if God decided to zap me, unasked.

  2. Interesting! I am forever indebted to a lovely single sister who served in the nursery and Primary when my 8th child (Micaela)turned 18 months. This friend loved our daughter and helped her adjust to being away from mom and dad. When it came time to go to the "big" Primary and Micaela refused to go...yelling and crying and screaming...my friend moved up with her...teaching the Sunbeam class and spent many hours teaching Micaela how to cope. My friend never had children, but she had wisdom and discernment and at least half a dozen angels assisting her!

    She even took me aside one day when I had tried to rescue her from Micaela (but walked away at her request)and thanked me for letting her serve!

  3. I was one of the mother-of-toddlers who made comments on how teenagers should be handled. Hoo boy, did I ever eat humble pie when they hit puberty. Luckily, we had moved by then and I didn't have people lining up on my doorstep to feed it to me.
