  3. Dawn, these are awesome quotes about children. I think I like the last one most. Something great to think about today.


    1. Denise, I'm so glad you enjoyed! I think the last one and Bill Gates's quote are my faves. Although Red Skelton's is pretty cute!

  4. I hadn't seen the majority of these quotes; all good ones. Liked Red Skeleton's one; isn't that the truth that kids resist going to bed? Thanks for sharing :)
