    The comment “We know that generations of mothers have done this before, but you, you’re doing a great job!” made me laugh and cry at the same time. I love being home with my 4 and 2 year olds (almost all the time), and while nothing I do with them is spectacular or the first experience of its kind, it is all special to us. I’ll consider myself patted on the back, but that’s certainly a comment I wouldn’t mind hearing every now and then!

    The Mommy: That is a wonderful idea! I will share it. Thanks so much.

    Yeah, I went too blonde for a while there. Then I was bald (not by choice), followed by black chemo fro (also not by choice.) Now it’s longish and brown, and people around here don’t recognize me because they remember me blonde.

    Jen, you were a blond?

    Anyways, I know what you mean about today’s mom having the best of both worlds. It is not always easy but we do it. Of course, most moms do not take the time to give themselves pat on the back because they know that it just part of who they are. I don’t know what else I would be if I was not a mother. I would focus on my career but to me, that is not enough.

    I’m rarely in photographs. I’m ALWAYS the “photographer” (technically, “picture taker”). When anyone asks me for advice for a trip to Disney World with kids (we’ve done it as a couple and with 1, 2, and 3 kids so far) I give my standard advice (pack a lunch; keep your cool) and I beg, BEG them to walk up to as many moms as possible and offer to take the photo for them…so they can be in it. I make sure to do it as often as I can and the results (BIG thanks, HUGE smiles) is really worth it. Moms rarely think to ask someone for this favor, but we are helping to create the memories…we should have photographic evidence of it!
