Parenting Percentages

Edison“Genius is one percent inspiration,

ninety-nine percent perspiration.”

-Thomas Edison


I think the same could be said of parenting…

It’s one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration.

Also, eighty-seven percent frustration.

And thirty-two percent indigestion.

Ten percent constipation.

Ninety-nine percent elation.

Two hundred percent celebration!

Zero percent Raider Nation.

One hundred percent saturation.

Twenty-seven percent animation.

Six percent medication.

Seventy-three percent imagination.

Forty-one percent misdirection.

And five hundred percent evolution!

Let’s see, that adds up to 1,275 percent. Sounds about right.

If you have any other suggestions let me know and I’ll add them to the list!
