Trite. I know.
But it’s true. And isn’t truth the bedrock of all things trite?
I have never been more humbled by my failings, my oversights, my impatience, my every imperfection than I am as a parent.
Being a litigation lawyer with very demanding and difficult clients, weasel-like opposing lawyers and fallible adjudicators is easier than being a mom.
Hands down. Any day of the week.
And therein lies the beauty and the rub of this exquisitely challenging and amazing role.
That is all.
