Both excerpts today for Book
Beginnings: and The Friday 56 are from ‘The Little Prince’ by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
This book is an attempt to complete my challenges but again, it has been on

The Friday 56
‘But if you come at just any time, I

Some quotes about motherhood that I saw today:
“Insanity is hereditary; you get it from your children.” Sam Levenson
“Mothers are basically part of a scientific experiment to prove that
sleep is not a crucial part of human life.” Author Unknown ]
“(24/7) once you sign on to be a mother, that’s the only shift they offer.”
My Sister’s Keeper
And I put this post as Fun of Motherhood – part 1 – since these few words are definitely not enough to explain the total joys of motherhood (though yet they might)!
