Motherhood is doing the same thing over and over and over, hoping someday the lessons you try to teach your kid actually stick. It reminds me of a great quote I saw from Helen Keller.
I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.
– Helen Keller
What “motherhood” duties — or fatherhood duties — do you have to do repeatedly that you believe will help your child in the long run?
I’ll start. When I tell Tripp to say “please” and “thank you,” I think it will eventually pay off!
What about you?
