"The development of empathy in a child is like the tide coming in, gradually the waves get higher up the sand, but we can't consider the process done and get disappointed when the occasional really big wave is followed by an apparent retreat." Robyne Coburn

"accept what IS and find the joy, rather than just waiting until things are as I thought they'd be". Sylvia Toyama

"Children are not the people of tomorrow, but people today. " Janusz Korczak

I just started reading your blog, but I like it already. I nominated you for the Sisterhood Award on my latest posting. Good luck with the new baby!
