Fun Friday – Fun of Motherhood..(part one)

Both excerpts today  for Book
: 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
my tbr as well since I asked my son to read it sometime back.

The Friday 56
‘But if you come at just any time, I
shall never know at what hour my heart is to be ready to greet you… One must
observe the proper rites..’

‘Once when I was six years old I saw a
magnificent picture in a book, called True Stories from Nature, about the
primeval forest. It was a picture of a boa constrictor in the act of swallowing
an animal.’

My Friday Flash 55

It is the end of this year – almost
361 days have flown by
What did I do – I wonder
for 8,664 hours and more?
I had all these lofty goals
Signed up for challenges galore
Pounds to lose were but a few
361 days passed
I still have the above mentioned to do

Friday, December 28, 2012
prompt for today: What is the hardest job you’ve ever done?
This sounds familiar to another question from earlier this month and the
answer remains the same – being a mom – it is a full-time job by itself. And when you are
a mom, you are also so many things more – a volunteer
at school for various activities, a cub scout den leader, a
classroom parent, a chaperone at field trips are few of them.
But in spite of all this, or rather because of all this, being a mom is also the funnest job I can have. I do not think any other job I do brings such gratification as being a mom does. 

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.”

Jodi Picoult,

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)!

  1. If I had seen that photo in the beginning of a book as a small child, I am afraid I'd be too frightened to look further!

    Re: Friday 56: I like to be prepared as well! We recently sold our house and having to be constantly on stand-by in case we had a viewing was an uncomfortable way to live for sure! Glad that part is over!

    Happy New Year to you!

  2. You always meet your challenges with brilliant creativity!
    You are a pleasure to read my friend

    Have a Kick Ass New Year…..G
