Mothers and Dreams

For my birthday, my mom gave me the book, A Camera, two Kids, and a Camel: My Journey in Photographs by Annie Griffiths Belt. It is Annie's story of how she balanced motherhood and a thrieving career as a National Geographic photographer traveling the world. I am reading it and loving it.

As a mother, it is important to remind myself I don't have to give up my own dreams, wants, and needs to be a good parent. Finding a balance is the key which is not always easy especially when she wake up at 5 am screaming and fussing like today. Lots of coffee and tea is usually how I scramble the the day right now.

You can listen to a slide show and/or hear Annie's NPR interview.

Thanks for the book, mom!
