Today’s quote is about life, and comes from the Corbett kids. They rattle off this phrase (sometimes cheerfully, sometimes not) when life throws them something unexpected, or something they don’t like.
Right now it’s usually reserved for when Mommy serves something for dinner they hate, but I hope they’ll carry this attitude into adulthood–along with the willingness to change what they don’t like instead of sulking or getting mad about it.
(Works best if said in a sing-song manner since it rhymes)
“You get what you get, so don’t throw a fit.”

I’ve decided to add a new feature to my blog to keep things fun—kid quotes. Since I have five-year-old twins I have a never-ending supply
Today’s quote comes courtesy of my daughter, who walked into the bathroom and found me on my hands and knees, scrubbing the floor…
“Mommy, you look just like Cinderella!”
Also, tomorrow I’m hosting a special guest. She’s self-published several books and not only is she generously sharing her writing journey, she is taking questions from readers. So, tomorrow is your chance to find out all about self-publishing!
