Diana, I can't thank you enough for sharing these parenting gems! I loved reading through these helpful reminders for ME. I'm the first to admit that I'm not a perfect parent because it's so easy to be impatient with your own children, or succumb to bad parenting vices. It's easy to lose sight of the fact that there's so many seasons of childhood. There will be chapters of a family story that require more flexibility and resilience. And that's why I'm so passionate about serving as your family's historian in the most beautiful and artful way possible. Mom-brain is a real thing, folks. Sometimes doing 'the things' really requires a village and I no longer have hang-ups about asking for help or outsourcing. (Btw, hiring a cleaning lady was one of the best decisions I've ever made for our family.) And remember, if all else fails- there's coffee + wine!
