Parenting advice I follow:
Two weeks after giving birth to our first child, my husband and I were hosting Thanksgiving dinner — it was just easier, because I couldn't walk any further than the front door without sitting down or falling asleep — and, right around dessert, I remember feeling suddenly overwhelmed by the enormity of it all. I just sat beside my daughter's crib and stared at her. My mother walked in and I questioned her being able to handle raising twins. She said, "I brought you guys home from the hospital, placed you side-by-side on my bed, and cried for about two hours. And then, I just did it." Since then, I've been just doing it, too.
Parenting advice I ignore:
Anything that requires a really good sense of balance. I am, however, pretty gosh-darned good at juggling stuff.
Favorite activity with my kids:
Hiking and beach-combing (weather permitting) cooking and playing board games (see last parenthesis!)
