“Don’t tell your kids you had an easy birth or they won’t respect you. For years I used to wake up my daughter and say, ‘Melissa, you ripped me to shreds. Now go back to sleep!’” – JOAN RIVERS

“The informality of family life is a blessed condition that allows us all to become our best while looking our worst.” – MARGE KENNEDY

“Now the thing about having a baby – and I can’t be the first person to have noticed this – is that thereafter you have it.” – JEAN KERR

“Your responsibility as a parent is not as great as you might imagine. You need not supply the world with the next conqueror of disease or a major motion-picture star. If your child simply grows up to be someone who does not use the word “collectible” as a noun, you can consider yourself an unqualified success.” – FRAN LEBOWITZ

“When my kids become wild and unruly, I use a nice, safe playpen. When they’re finished, I climb out.” –  ERMA BOMBECK

“I don’t really know what to discipline by kids about because I don’t think there’s anything wrong with them.

Maybe I’m making monsters out of them but I can’t help myself.” – UMA THURMAN

“We spend the first twelve months of our children’s lives teaching them to walk and walk and the next twelve telling them to sit down and shut up.” – PHYLLIS DILLER

“It kills you to see them grow up. But I guess it would kill you quicker if they didn’t.” – BARBARA KINGSOLVER

“It’s frightening to think that you make your children merely by being yourself… It seems unfair. You can’t assume the responsibility for everything you do  – or don’t do.”  – SIMONE DE BEAUVOIR

“Tired is the new black” – AMY POEHLER
