I'm always myself. I mean, truly, who else can I be? I understand the question though…when do I feel most like what I consider to be the definition my genuine self?
When I am a mother...
Whether I am soothing a skinned knee, a bad day or making a memory with my boys, I feel the times with my children most keenly. Perhaps having so many wonderful recollections of my own childhood makes me think of each moment with my kids as an opportunity. I find myself recounting funny stories about joyful times with my parents and grandparents to my sons almost every day. As we stumble through our daily life, I love the idea that our adventures together will become the fabric of their own memories that will bind us together as they venture out into the world.
