On to today's quote:
Successful parenting means: one, becoming what you should be. And two, staying close enough to the children for it to rub off. - Anne OrtlundIs it just me or is the first step the hardest?
My children are close to me (at least at this stage of their lives) all.the.time. I know these days pass quickly, and I will one day be looking back wistfully, but just for now I'd like to, oh, I don't know, wash my face and brush my teeth without a small person following me to the bathroom door.
Becoming what I should be? Yep, that's the hardest part for me.
