What Kind of Parent Will I Be?
This blog post makes me think (and laugh) a lot. Mostly, it humbles me and reminds me to pray that I am wise enough to use the lessons I've learned over my lifetime when they are needed, but able to leave my child the space they require to grow into their own person.
Take a look - it's worth the quick read.
If I were to pick a famous mom to model myself after, it would be Claire Huxtable probably. With the exception of Denise, her kids were all pretty well balanced. Runner up would be Carol Brady, but honestly - I always wondered what she did all day.
Mostly, I pray to be blessed to be a parent one day - at all.
