They’re only young once

“I don’t suppose anybody ever gets to the deathbed scene wishing they’d spent more time at the office. You only have your kids for a while; they’re only small once, so why not enjoy them? Parenting has its drudgery and its stresses and low moments. Kids break your heart and wear you out, but anything that’s important will cost you something.” – Tim Winton, author and playwright.

  • Parenting can be difficult, but the reward is so great.
  • Remember that work will always be there, but your children won’t.
