Mike here again. So last time I talked about what an awe-inspiring experience it was to see Meg go through the birth and come out the other side still swinging. This got me thinking though, I really am truly lucky to be surrounded in my life by many amazing women.
Mom (Anne), Lisa, Erin, Brady…these are four women who between them have raised 11 children and managed to balance their impressive mothering skills with holding down successful careers. They are educators, advocates, guides, leaders, writers, and protectors – both in their home lives and in their careers. And they are all also wonderful grandmother/aunts. Thank you guys for all your help so far!
I’m also lucky to have married into a family of strong, smart, and caring women. Monica, Kate, Emily and Lisa are a group of supporting and loving women who have been extremely comforting voices throughout the last week, both for Meg and for me. I can’t wait for all of them to meet Elsa in a few weeks.
With role models like these, I think Elsa has a great shot at growing up to be an amazing woman herself.
