Making It Stick

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?

    Consistency is key. Your Dad is a great role model, Bristol. Great work ethic, kind, polite. I really hope that Tripp grows up to be just like him.
