I get whatever placidity I have from my father. But my mother taught me how to take it on the chin.
I had no idea that mothering my own child would be so healing to my own sadness from my childhood.
I regret not having had more time with my kids when they were growing up.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
I think I'm going to have to live vicariously through my daughter's rebellion because I certainly never did go through adolescence.
