Parents.. Just be yourself.
Mamas... with the recent and tragic passing of Robin Williams, I just had to share this article about a rather haunting answer he gave to a Reddit question last year..
I think it speaks volumes to remind parents to just be THEMSELVES.. our kiddos don't need over the top voices or skits 24/7.. they just need us.
"My children give me a great sense of wonder. Just to see them develop into these extraordinary human beings. And a favorite book as a child? Growing up, it was The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe -- I would read the whole C.S. Lewis series out loud to my kids. I was once reading to Zelda, and she said 'don't do any voices. Just read it as yourself.' So I did, I just read it straight, and she said 'that's better.'"
