“I was fun. I was everything to everyone and everyone’s best friend and I instantly clicked with people. I’m a very social [person] and I feel like I still am but just to a select few people. Obviously in Motherhood you find your group of moms and those are your people and in that you have to select the ones that you personally get along with, not just your kids. So just like in adult life, instead of counting friends you just collect the few you have. So I think that person is still me but with just not as many friends. I’m still fun but I do more fun things for kids.”

“I guess that it’s just all-consuming. It is an all consuming 24/7 job and it IS work. I think there are so many jobs where people are respected on a different level, whether it’s creative work or anything in the professional field but Motherhood is kind of seen as this thing that is just your duty and it’s expected.

“How I managed their diagnosis (her daughter was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and her son with Tourette’s Syndrome)…in terms of what I had to do. And I think the more calm and matter of fact I was about it the more success I had in getting them the help they needed. And just fighting for them. I was always such a, you know, I’m still not a big confrontational person but I was always a kind of passive, I don’t want to say anything, I would never even think of telling a doctor something thing they did was wrong and then when it came to them I was like a different person. And I learned if you don’t ask, you don’t get and that was really kind of crazy and heartbreaking because you think of people who don’t have access to stuff or have a language barrier.
