Parenting: The Wildest Ride

Dear Joe-Henry,
This is what it's like to be your mom.
I'm often caught in an unflattering moment.
But I would rather be on this ride with you than carefully maintaining my decorum and dignity in some other life.

Life with you is a blast.

the contrast between your fun and the rather anxious looking person behind you is hilarious.

Perfection... this post is absolute perfection. I defy anyone to describe motherhood more honestly, succinctly and beautifully. Can't be done!
