i’m happy that tae is growing up in boston. i love that she points out the charles river. i love that every morning when we drive to school, she exclaims, “what’s coming up?… it’s the boston red sox!” (as we glimpse fenway park on the drive in to work.)
right now, i am most glad that we’re in boston because we’re close to gi-gi and pop-pop. my job title just officially changed over to “acting director.” which means that i’m doing my old job and my old boss’s job all at once. (yet i’m not being paid two salaries. hmm.) and managing a toddler. and trying to maintain some semblance of a normal adult life. and so, without gi-gi and pop-pop and the rest of my support network here in boston, i wouldn’t be able to do it.
if i had a dollar for every time someone called me super woman for managing all that i try to manage, i could send tae to college for free. i don’t like being called super woman, because i’m not. i just have amazing friends and family, an amazing daughter, and a career that sustains me. and it is those things that give me the strength to do all the things that i do.
