The Original Question

The Question:
You know the most about motherhood of anyone I know and you give me snippets of your wisdom as I ask for it, beg for it, or stand in obvious need of it. I am lucky to have you and I know it.

But I think it only fair that you use your wisdom and writing ability to create this little blog with me. I want it for my children and theirs. I will ask you one question each week. You can take a week to answer. Your answer can be a paragraph or a novel (I prefer the novel, I think). All I ask is that you go along with this for a little while, indulge me.

I think the world could use your advice, I know I do.

So, what do you say? Are you in?


The Answer:
I think this says a lot for you Natalie. Most people, by the time they leave home and are firmly established in their own lives, are pretty much finished with advice from their parents. It never ceases to amaze me how open you are to suggestions--what a teachable mother you are. I'm not the "Sage of Motherhood" (where I assume all questions will be focused) but I've loved the challenge of it. I love stepping back from the moment and seeing the bigger picture. I love children. So...sure!
