"I was having breakfast with Mike a month or so before he hired me, back in 1983. He proudly showed me a picture of his son Jason. And he said, ‘Having children is the best reminder that there is a life outside of advertising.’ I never forgot it. And he was right."
"Hemingway on writing: “When you stop you are as empty, and at the same time never empty but filling, as when you have made love to someone you love."
"My final request to all who read this blog: love. Love your babies, your husbands, mothers, sisters. Love each day like it’s your last. All you mamas out there, you have been entrusted with the precious gift of a human life who depends on you. Enjoy your gift. Breathe in the scent of your child’s hair, breath. Let them cook with you and make a mess of the kitchen. Play hide and seek with them, build sand castles with them, take them on picnics, read to them! Listen to them, value and respect them, never shame them. Your words they will carry with them their whole life and you have the power to give them wings or stunt their growth. Motherhood can be tough but it’s worth it. It can be exhausting, boring, tedious, but never for long. You blink and they’re grown. It has been my honor and privilege to love Daisy these last 8 years. I’m thankful for every minute; the joyful and the terrible alike."
