Nanny Brenda says:
All mothers are quite brilliant in my eyes and nine times out of ten don t realize the sacrifices they undertake or the powerful contributions they make.
Little folk deserve a childhood that's full of fun. It's the single most valuable lesson in my eyes.
Everyone knows you simply can t retire from love. Children leave you; you don t leave children. That's the natural order of things.
I have puzzled many times over the ingredients for a perfect recipe for a happy home. It needs to be a place with parents who worship their offspring. Throw in some stability, a dash of routine, and respect.
