We raise our kids to handle whatever life throws at them with dignity, grace, intelligence, and empathy. We train them for it. Then one day it happens. They take all that learning and they apply it to life.

It’s this weird in-between that’s become a struggle as if I’m going through my own awkward phase as a parent. The kind where I’m still a mom but don’t really feel like it.

Flaming pinball, nerd, music lover, wine snob, horrible violin player. No, I won’t stop taking pictures of my drinks. vanessaltorre@gmail.com IG: vanessaltorre
