What I Hope My Daughter Is Like As A Mom

I Hope She's Patient
Patience is a virtue that a mother needs in spades, and I spent 13 years practicing as an elementary school teacher. That doesn't mean I don't lose my temper sometimes, but it does help me deal with a 3 year-old who needs to do everything herself.

When her children test boundaries, I'd like to see my daughter slow down, take a deep breath, and respond calmly. Easier said than done!
