Parenting, I’ve come to understand, is about loving my child today. Now. In fact, for any parent, anywhere, that’s all there is. (Emily Rapp)
I am a tiger mom.
When I think about my son, it is too often in the future tense. What will he wear, where will he go to school, when should he start potty training.
I read an article this weekend that had been making the rounds on Facebook. A beautiful and difficult article to read, it taught me just how silly and frivolous my future tense thoughts are.
Please read Notes from a Dragon Mom by Emily Rapp. You will cry.
Then, you'll go wrap your babes up tight and love them as fiercely as you can today.
