Quotes:
From "Downton Abbey: Episode #3.8" (2012)
Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham: One forgets about parenthood. The on-and-on-ness of it.
Isobel Crawley: Were you a very involved mother with Robert and Rosamund?
Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham: Does it surprise you?
Isobel Crawley: A bit. I'd imagined them surrounded by nannies and governesses, being starched and ironed to spend an hour with you after tea.
Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham: Yes, but it was an hour *every day*.
Isobel Crawley: [momentarily lost for words] I see, yes. How tiring!
