No work today…I took the day off. I think I will work right up until the Little Bean decides to come out…that’s the plan anyway. In the meantime, I will take a day off here and there to do stuff around the house and, of course, read, find quotes, and update my blog.
Here is a quote by William E. Blatz, found in my pregnancy journal:
List of parental requirements:
- Affection without sentiment
- Authority without cruelty
- Discipline without aggression
- Humor without ridicule
- Sacrifice without obligation
- Companionship without possessiveness
Sound like good goals even for non-parental relationships. That first one is a bit unclear to me…I am interpreting it as “affection without judgement” or “without opinion”. (Do you have another interpretation? Please comment…)
These are things I will strive for.
