“Mother love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible.”
–Marion C. Garretty
“There is no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one.”
My new great-niece was born last week, and I am so excited to have another woman in my family! The Currier clan is a little heavy on the guy side, so it is wonderful to welcome another lady into the fold. Now we have another reason to buy pretty pink shoes, play with Barbies, and host tea parties.
Sending lots of love (and a few inspirational quotes) to Max, Rachael, and Fiona. Please keep me in mind for babysitting and I can’t wait for my first pop-a-party night with Fiona.
