How does it all boil down to this? I have reasons to feel pretty well-footed in the mellow mothering department. Six kids later—boys and girls ranging from four-years to almost 13 years old, more than a decade working in urban elementary charter schools in cities all over our country, yogic trainings, my own studies, meditation, wellness and personal development retreats.
Do you ever feel like the grim reaper at meal time? A total nag? Find candy wrappers under your kids’ beds? Maybe it’s just me. But when our then two-year-old was diagnosed with eosinophilic esophagitis five years ago, I went into full-blown nutrition researcher-internet doctor-read every book I could get my hands on-mode.
And a yogi.* And an animal lover. I’m wildly imperfect. Full of contradictions. And done, totally done, with justifying and explaining. Every dalliance. Every nap. Saying no, thank you. Glass of wine on a school night. Not having a regular blogging schedule (or a regular anything business-oriented).
