All my life, I knew I wanted to be a mom. There was never a question of 'if' just a question of when and how many (that last question has yet to be answered). I expected both great joy and great challenges, and more than any other age, Luca's third year has been a huge learning experience for all of us. Three ushered in the era of tantrums and screaming and defiance. Three also ushered in independence, personal style, sense of humor, compassion, and a love for school and her new friends, imagination play, empathy, and more. It's been an amazing year that's stretched us all, and it's not even over yet!
And so, when I saw this clip, I laughed my ass off. Really, he hit the nail on the head here.
