Got something to say?
I loved this essay! I have just spent a week feeling an amazing amount of vicarious stress, as my 8 year old daughter goes through the process of getting fitted for braces. Her very high level of anxiety has stressed me more than anything I've had to face myself --I am so conjoined.What an appropriate way to describe becoming a mom.
I am so glad to read Catherine Newman in Brain, Child. What insight you have. You always make me think and touch my heart.
Two of my very favorite things in one place: Catherine Newman and Brain, Child. Perfection!Thanks again, Catherine, for putting into beautiful words the things that chase around in the corners of my head. "I am reminded for the umpteenth time that we have shared a body, this child and I...but then... we are two different people after all." Wow.
This is a beautiful essay. Thank you.
Wow. Lovely lovely essay. Thank you.
We don't hear as much about the kids as we used to . . . how wonderful to know that not much has changed. We love your family, Catherine!
This made me cry, and also smile as I was reminded of my own fascination with the creepier parts of "The Book of Lists" as a child
That was one of the most beautiful things you have written Catherine....so so beautiful
Catherine, you're wonderful!
Catherine, having read (and loved) your book about your pregnancy with Birdy and knowing now that somehow that once-pudgy newborn is *six* really makes that cliche true: they grow up so fast. Except not my own kids, who can stretch a day like the world's biggest lump of silly putty. Thanks for reminding me that each sometimes-grueling moment really is precious.
This is the best article I've ever read in Brainchild. For the first time, I'm going to keep this magazine and just email my friends the link instead. I am so greatful to have words that so perfectly, and elegantly describe my feelings of motherhood.
