Picture Perfect

As a young child and teenager, I wanted to be the mother of many children. I used to wish I was the woman who lived in the shoe who “had so many children she didn’t know what to do.” Then I had my first child. I wanted to rewrite that children’s rhyme to “she had one screaming child, she didn’t know what to do.”

Below is a link to an article which was published in Family Foundations Magazine in 2003. Although it was written seven years ago, it still rings true today as I adjust to mothering pre-teens, teenagers and young adults.
