What I know

Pin It

When I first entered school, I didn’t know anything.
When I received my diploma, I thought I knew everything.

When I first entered college, I didn’t know anything.
When I received my degree, I thought I knew everything.

When I first entered the workforce, I didn’t know anything.
When I received my first promotion, I thought I knew everything.

When I first entered parenthood, I didn’t know anything.

. . . Some things never change.

  1. Ah, with parenting…the more I parent the less I seem to know about parenting.

    • I keep trying to remind myself life’s a journey, not a destination. It makes it easier to enjoy the ride. Although when it comes to parenting, a comprehensive instructional manual (or even a road map!) would be more than welcome at times . . . 😉

    Ha, I’ve found that these days I’m in a state of awe at all the things I don’t know. I can’t wait to be a parent – then I’ll really feel like a moron! 🙂

    John, that’s the plan! I think we might have found “the dog” but we’re still working out the details. Of course, once we get the dog, my blog will become nothing but dog photos….
