Every baby needs a lap.
Barbara Lazear Ascher
The hot, moist smell of babies fresh from naps.
Ruth Bell Graham
As a mother, my job is to take care of what is possible and trust God with the impossible.
Children reinvent your world for you.
It is a pleasant thing to reflect upon, and furnishes a complete answer to those who contend for the gradual degeneration of the human species, that every baby born into the world is a finer one than the last.

Adam and Eve had many advantages, but the principal one was that they escaped teething.

God's interest in the human race is nowhere better evinced than in obstetrics.
Barbara Kingsolver, Animal Dreams
It kills you to see them grow up. But I guess it would kill you quicker if they didn't.
P. J. O'Rourke
Getting down on all fours and imitating a rhinoceros stops babies from crying. (Put an empty cigarette pack on your nose for a horn and make loud "snort" noises.) I don't know why parents don't do this more often. Usually it makes the kid laugh. Sometimes it sends him into shock. Either way it quiets him down. If you're a parent, acting like a rhino has another advantage. Keep it up until the kid is a teenager and he definitely won't have his friends hanging around your house all the time.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
