Annie- I absolutely love that Picasso quote. I just got teary-eyed reading it. Sometimes I still have to sit back and realize that I am a Mom, and how much our kids take in what we teach them. Wow. We are being trusted so much to do the best job we can do. No pressure, huh?! :)Thanks for these great quotes!
