>I read an op/ed earlier this week that has stuck with me. As a mother who is constantly questioning my performance at my most important job, a column that points out that there is an entire country, a hugely populated one at that, where every mother out performs me is bound to cause some reflection.
As I read through the article, my first thought was that I was sure glad that this lady wasn’t MY mother. I bet my kids would agree.
On second thought…as I bit my finger nails off today (The first time in MONTHS :(), and ate breakfast pizza when I am supposed to be dieting, and couldn’t concentrate on my work at work, and gave up on getting my toddler to let let me brush her teeth, maybe I need to be my own Chinese mother. I certainly won’t start calling my kids names when they “under perform” so being a Chinese mother to them is pretty much out of the question.
