Tough being a parent

I regularly read the blog of Heather Armstrong, Dooce, me and 3,599 others at least. Heather's writing is absorbing, not least of all because it often deals with the challenges of being a parent - challenges I'm acutely aware of. This link takes you to Heather's monthly letter to her daughter, Leta, letter 32. Leta, who is gorgeous, bright and creative, is a lucky girl to have a mother such as Heather.

Every parent must have moments where they wonder about how they're coping and about how their children might be affected when things are a struggle as they are from time to time - God knows I do - I'm going to make sure my wife knows how much I admire her, how much I love her and how grateful I am.

You always wonder about such things. No matter what, if you are coming from a position of love things work out ok, even with the mistakes along the way.
