6 Inspirational thoughts from Amy Poehler – Friday Frivolity

For our Friday Frivolity host theme this week we chose Amy Poehler. Well, Lisa and Sarah chose, I had to Google her. No offense, Amy! I am an old lady with a 7 year old. He gets the TV during the day and I just enjoy the blessed silence once he is in bed.

I did some searching around and found out she is an amazingly brilliant, funny and inspirational woman. And that is the way I am going with our theme today – her inspirational quotes. Be sure to check out Devastated Boredom and Syncopated Mama to see what they have to share.



Motherhood doesn’t have to equal guilt?! What a concept.



Oh I wish the major political parties would learn this!
