Like every mother, I often feel like I want to suspend time. I know I can’t, and the truth is, witnessing her growth is the greatest reward. Her expression, her experience, her humor, her frustrations, her wit, her delight – all of it. I love all of it.
This will be her last full season mostly at home with me in the studio. Next year is kinder, and I will hold these memories close. The sometimes crazy, sometimes wildly frustrating time we’ve spent together making flowers, and painting, and singing, and snacking, and dancing, and boutonniere-ing, and even yelling at each other. True.
I know many of you out there are also juggling career and family. I admit it’s a daily struggle and I need reminders. How do you manage it?
“take a break already!”
ok ok…good idea Alice! Let’s go to the park:)
