How many children do you have and what are their ages?

I have 2 children a boy and a girl, ages 2 & 4 respectively

What is ONE song that reminds you of your child(ren)?

Happy by Pharrell

How would you define your style of parenting?

I pretty much let them do what they want. I only structure some things. We like to have a good time and fly by the seat of our pants. But when things get out of hand I’m the one to disciple them. Dad has too much of a soft spot and will let them just get away with anything.

Do you have a restaurant or favorite place that you will only go with your child(ren)?

We spend a lot of time at Fort Greene Park either walking or on the playground.

What is one piece of advice you would give your child(ren) that can apply to their entire life?

Love yourself. Do not allow anyone to tear you down and make you feel worthless.

With my mother’s 50-somethingth birthday coming upon Father’s Day (how funny), I was thinking about how she feels now that she has two grown children and four grandchildren. Does she think about the mistakes she made with us growing up? How often? Does she think about the mistakes her children make as parents and ever blame herself? I don’t mean to sound negative but although I’m only seven years into motherhood, I have questions like this myself. Sometimes I catch my mom just staring at me and I wonder what she sees. Happy Birthday, Mom!!!
