Just a couple quotes for you guys. If you are a mom or expecting mother happy mother’s day! And, of course, Happy Mother’s Day to my wife Beckie. The best wife a guy could ask for, and a wonderful mom to our son. I couldn’t find who said some of the quotes so I am going to list them as ‘Anon’ for now. If you know who might be the person who said it please let me know in the comments and I’ll update this post.
