Geewhizz, it's been the journey of my life! And I'm not there yet...
I started off just wanting to do my best for my children.
My evolution as a parent has been challenging, happy, sad, maddening, enlightening (every emotion you can posibly think of).
I think the biggest lesson of all has been to let go- of any expectations I have at all, of any parenting notions I still have.
I am still so far from perfect. But I'm still capable of learning.
