Type A Mom Quotables

Only Parent Chronicles

I learned a lot when I chose to go to one of the "practicalities" sessions and was inspired by the "passions" sessions. Lots of amazing women there and it was held in the gorgeous city of Asheville, NC. Definitely a conference to attend if you can! Thanks again to Tooth Soap, whose sponsorship made it possible for me to attend.

I think we all like to believe that our voice matches our hearts. Doesn't always translate that way though.

These were little bits of wisdom Shell! Thanks for sharing them with us!

It's good that adults get reminded to act like adults. The world as a whole could use that reminder sometimes, not just bloggers.

Hope you had fun!

I always have a negative stick in my head eventhough I know to think of ALL the positive! I am hard on myself like that.
Oh yeah, and the picture of my hair... So forgot to take one I am so bad!

I might have to save a couple of these post-its to my hard drive. :)

Oh I love the "entitled brats" one! That is what turns me off to some of the bigger mommy bloggers - the cat fights that ensue in the comments. Grr...

Those are some great reminders of why we do what we do.

I just found your blog, and I love it, I am a new follower!

You should link up some of your kids quotes, on Thursday's, for Things Kids Say...

I will be back to read often!!!

I think I like the one about not making the negative comments more important than those that support.

I love this collection! It summed up the best of what I learned there.

Let your voice match your heart.

This one stands out to me. It is so true! Do not try and be who you are not.

This is a terrific, useful post! Thanks. The part about the money cracked me up again; I had a Milwaukee offer me an "exciting opportunity" of $50 to put their ad on my blog. Seriously?! I politely declined and in a nice way told them they were insane.
