I am just not her. You know, that girl. But those are the things that I want to teach MY girl. And to teach, don't I sort of need to have it together myself? How in the world is Hazel ever going to know how to
But meanwhile, while I am tolling over becoming that girl, I am going to remember that there are other things that I already am that I want to teach my children. I am that avid reader girl who makes weekly trips to the library. I am that girl who loves to be outside with her kids and would spend sun up to sun down (during the spring and fall) at the park with them. I am that girl who doesn't mind getting glue and paint and glitter all over the floor and herself in the name of an art project (even if its not particulary crafty!). Its so easy to think of the things we are not. I am going to remember those things I am when I start to compare myself to that image of the person I think I should be.
