What I Hope My Daughter Is Like As A Mom

I Hope She's Accepting
It was an important realization for me that my kids are who they are. My daughter is highly sensitive, and I can't change that. It's not that I can't help shape her or influence her behavior, but I'm a better mom having made peace with her essential nature. 

I hope that my daughter learns that lesson earlier than I did. The sooner she's accept who her kids are (and without judgment), the more she'll be able to appreciate everything that makes them special. And her children will know that not only can they be whatever they want... they're free to be whoever they are.
