I’m Not Really Here Today!

That’s right, today my blog is over at Take-2-Mommy as part of a series by New Jersey bloggers called “Jersey Mamas Got Blog.” Since Jenn—the fabulous creator of Take2Mommy—is the mother to two boys, she asked me to write a post about parenting my son. I readily agreed.

Unfortunately, this turned out to be much more difficult than I had first imagined.

In the end, I was forced to take a look at how I may be parenting my son differently than my daughter. I hope you’ll stop by and read my latest post. While there, feel free to leave a comment—I’ll be moderating and responding as if it were my own site.

Thank you!

A few years ago, my then eight-year-old daughter told me that she wished I could write down all the things I told her so that she wouldn’t forget them when she got older. In that moment, my daughter gave me such a sense of validation, something I hadn’t really experienced in that way. As parents, we don’t often receive confirmation from our children that we are doing a good job, or that we even know what we are talking about. Since that time, I’ve started to pay more attention to the things I tell her, often thinking to myself “Will she remember this when she is older?” So, this is for her, my words of advice to be read, thought about, laughed at, and maybe even used, when she is older.
