    Good Morning Joanna, Just finished reading some of your recent posts(936 pennies, after 936 pennies, and this one)
    I wish that when my son James was born, I had the wisdom of the 936 pennies. Of course hindsight is 20/20, I would have mothered differently, more like IT MATTERED, It was an investment of time, effort and most importantly, Love.
    It seemed as I raced through each day, trying to fill it with TONS of activities to teach and guide him. I must have done something right- he’s Jr. at Penn State, main campus and still learning new activities. I remember a doctor along the way saying to me about the “parenting experts”. He said that I was an expert also and that I was an expert of
    James Udischas III. What a boost of confidence! I know your posts are sure to get many, many more hits! I hope that each and every reader utilizes the penny analogy- Thanks for your insight!

      Thank you so much, that is a big encouragement to me this morning!

      It’s so true–in a world full of parenting “experts” and parenting books, when it comes to our own children–we are the expert, even if we don’t exactly feel like one. Thank you for the insightful reminder!
