Rooster Cogburn . . . On Parenting

One night, in the craziness of the bedtime routine with the kids, I happened to think of a quote from True Grit. Rooster wasn’t giving parenting advice, but his wisdom seems transferable. You parents know what I mean.

You go for a man hard enough and fast enough, he don’t have time to think about how many’s with him. He thinks about hisself, and how he might get clear of that wrath that’s about to set down on him.
