At the end of a trying day not too long ago, I sighed and said to my oldest, “You’re going to grow up and talk to your friends about your childhood and say, ‘You mean your mother didn’t yell?'” He looked at me with genuine skepticism and said, “Noooooo I’m not! I’m going to say, ‘You mean your mother didn’t do art with you all the time?'”
Here’s to recognizing our strengths as mothers! Happy Mother’s Day to us all.
