"Be the person you needed when you were younger" ~ Ayesha A Siddiqi
What does it mean to be a parent? It's a life filled with joy, love, happiness, pride, trust, fear, stress, worry, and so much more. As soon as your child is born you want to keep them safe from anything or anybody that may hurt them. Sometimes we are filled with joy, so proud to tell the world what our child has done. Our pages are filled with accolades and pictures of success.
Other times we wonder: how am I going to survive the mood swings, the yelling, the disrespect. Our kids are learning to spread their wings and find themselves, we are learning to walk this path with them and support them as they grow. It's not always easy, but no one ever said it would be.
