"Our pets know well that they are loved less than our children but, alas, they have no sense that their need is less."
"Do I give in to temptation too easily? Well, let's just say that the devil has not had to resort to waterboarding."
"Parenthood is the passing of a baton, followed by a lifelong disagreement as to who dropped it."
"Some say the world will end by fire, some say by ice, some say by a simultaneous crash of MySpace and Facebook."
"I wonder -- do we succeed as parents if we shield our kids from the hard lessons of life that will make them successful parents?"
-- Robert Brault
