This blog was inspired by a conversation I had with a friend yesterday. A conversation that started out about daycare options soon became one about our hopes and fears for our kids, which became a larger conversation about how deeply we appreciate the pain and fear our very existence must have brought our mothers.

My mother taught me the importance of good communication early on. One of her most-used phrases during my childhood was, “talking to you and your sister is like talking to a brick wall!”
