Parenting Advice?

So, today on The Madness one of my admins posted a question.  “What one piece of parenting advice would you give”?  Well, we all know sometimes other people’s advice is often unwarranted and unwanted.  Some advice is just someone’s rude opinion of how you are not parenting according to THEIR standards.  Bullshit.

Being a Mom

  It isn’t just the good times that make being a mom the best thing in the world. No, it’s the tough times, the bad times, the sick times, the indecisive times, the not so sure times, the “I’m a bad mom” times, the OMG times, the “Did I really just do that” times. It’s…
