On a lighter note, & for the record, we had a lesson in RS on Sunday about the difference between advice & counsel. Most women groaned about advice from parents & the dreaded Mom in law. I'm a lucky girl to love both my moms, & that they are wonderful as to not shower me with useless advice. They are both insightful & loving.
As to those strangers at the store when my children are screaming, they can shove their opinions & advice up their nosy behinds. Is that polite enough??? It's not really what I wanted to say, but seemed appropriate enough.
