    I love this! All quotes were terrific and the one that really hit home for me was the air traffic controller comparison! Every morning when I rise at 6am, I have 2 solid hours of work ahead of me with making breakfast, signing off on papers my kids forgot to tell me about the night before, making fresh lunches, labeling the water bottles, applying sunscreen (a must here in PHX), feeding the cats, changing the cat litter….etc…and then my kids attend different schools (one in elem and one in middle school) that start at different times, so it is up and back in my car four times. Ahhh…these are the days! Crazy, tiring….but I’ll miss them some day!

    Thanks for sharing these great quotes! Fun..and true!
