Munia Khan
“Old soul cries through the tears of a newborn”
Munia Khan

“If Mom is convinced that ballet lessons are a must, she should
take them.

Although it may look odd to see a thirty-year old woman hang- ing onto a bar and flinging a slightly plump leg in the air, the sight is not as pathetic as seeing her seven-year old daughter grimly going through such motions just to please her mother, when she would prefer to be at home designing new doll clothes.

Although some parents are never quite ready to accept this fact, the child is not one of our possessions. We don’t own him; we never will. We gave birth to his body; he may share some of our physical characteristics; but he does not inherit our desires.

He’s a different person, a separate entity, with his own likes and dislikes.

It’s a grave mistake to try to override a child’s power of choice in what he wants to be and do. Some parents do this in an attempt to live their lives through the child.”
Ruth Minshull

L.R. Knost
“Taking care of myself doesn't mean 'me first.' It means 'me, too.”

Pawan Mishra, Coinman: An Untold Conspiracy

Kenneth Oppel
“Nothing's scarier than having a sick child, and one so newly born, and so vulnerable. It's the worst thing for a parent.”

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“To some believers, being on the pill or using a condom is a nonverbal way of telling God to go to hell.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana, The Use and Misuse of Children

L.R. Knost
“When we encourage new parents to 'treasure these moments because they don't last forever' we need to remember to also reassure them that they will survive these moments because they don't last forever.
Parenting is hard, and the struggles can sometimes feel like they overshadow the joys. Knowing that struggling is normal and will pass helps us get through the hard times so we can truly treasure the good ones.”
L.R. Knost

Curtis Tyrone Jones
“Nothing compares to becoming aware of the massive face of the universe hidden in a newborn’s stare.”
Curtis Tyrone Jones, Mirrors Of The Sun: Finding Reflections Of Light In The Shittiness Of Life

L.R. Knost
“Night waking isn't the sign of a bad baby. It's the sign of a normal baby. Nighttime needs are as valid as daytime needs and nighttime parenting as necessary as daytime parenting. Crying is communication, not manipulation. Respond to your baby's cries, even if all they need is to know you're there. You're not being manipulated. You're being a parent.”
L.R. Knost

Kathleen Ossip
“A newborn is murderous/but can't do anything about it.”
