A time to stop and note and appreciate the women/mother figures in our lives. Today, I'm celebrating my mom:
*note too, that while my mom was pursuing her career in dentistry she got some push back. When she first became pregnant with me, her clinical professor asked her if it was mistake. Later on, when she wanted to direct another class, the chariman of her department suggested she go home and be with her children instead.
My mom of course kept at it. And she pulled it off.
P.S. you'll be hearing more from my mom soon. She has a guest post coming up about listening to your body and in-transit bathroom emergencies.
