Motherhood 2004-2005

Motherhood is a career worth living for . . .

To me in particular, it is art, and its product a masterpiece: In general, art has been a way of life for my own children.

They took swimming lessons with me at three months and joined a co-op at eighteen months. From preschool on, I became a full-fledged PTA member, volunteering as Homeroom Mom, listening to kindergarteners read, teaching art history as well as arts and crafts in elementary school.

I worked on props at all school levels, and co-produced a video proudly promoting my children’s high school. Yes, my children have lived by the golden rule, just like I have by the example of relentless women in my childhood.
