Best Child Rearing Advice, Ever - A Snippet

I had this quote from Dr. Spock on my refrigerator when The Cuters were kids:
All parents do their best job when they have a natural, easy confidence in themselves. Better to make a few mistakes from being natural than to try to do everything letter-perfect out of a feeling of worry.
Or, as MTF wrote, in a postcard that was affixed right above Dr. Spock:
CONGRATULATIONS! Remember this: no matter what you do, you’ll feel guilty. So, you might as well do what you want to do and hope for the best.
Words to live by, indeed.

    1. Kathy, I can't tell you the number of times I stood in front of that stainless steel surface, reminding myself that I had done the best I could do, despite my shortcomings :-)
