Yee haw!

My perfect moment is this moment – recognizing the things that didn’t work out the way we had hoped as well as the things that are going well. I’m feeling at peace on LB’s 4 month birthday and Ernest’s 4 year anniversary of his birth.

That’s impressive. I’m still not sure my 18-year-old step son can do that.

Independence for <>whom<>, YOU, or THEM?OK, isn’t that just a BIT ostentatious, rubbing your <>perfect<> mothering into the face of your lesser (me)?I always feel like such a fool when other people’s kids are more responsible than mine. Time to get back into a shape-up program for the mothering Olympics. I obviously have a long way to go.
