Motherhood is teaching your little one to be the best version of himself or herself:
Free to make his or her own choices
Free to express his or her personality
Perhaps not in the first 2 to 3 years of his or her life (although that's exactly when they will TRY to make a bid for it), but s/he'll eventually get there.
Then we'll all sit back, raise our glasses, and cheer them on as they embark on their own journey in life!
Can't wait to get to that part, huh? I know I do. I mean, won't it be just amazing if we can skip the tantrum phase and get to the wine? LOL (The ultimate #wishfulthinking)
