A Cultured Life…

…stumbling through life with two beautiful daughters – often tripping, sometimes running!!

mommy (or daddy!!) thoughts…..

on November 7, 2013

Today started out as a weirdly difficult/sad/moody day for no particular reason. Read this piece on parenting by Charles Blow in the NYT http://www.nytimes.com/2013/11/07/opinion/blow-the-passion-of-parenting.html?hp&rref=opinion and promptly burst into tears at the office!! Just what i needed – a soul cleaning good cry. One line which stuck long after is “….parenting was a lot like giving a hug: It’s all about love and pressure and there is no one way to do it.”

I am in second college application phase of my life and am not quite ready to look in the eye at what’s next.  Thank god for #NABLOPOMO – I have found my outlet!!!
