I tell myself to get a grip. A lot. 

And it's not that I'm my own worst critic (though, really, I am).

It's that I've gained perspective with parenthood.

It's been one of the best surprises. 

The way I see my own parents, other parents, my friends, my family -- all of it shifted when I stepped into this pair of shoes that seem too big to ever be filled.
