About Raising Humans

About halfway through my daughter’s first year, I saw it coming. That turning point. The moment when parenthood moved beyond purely basic needs to the business of raising this tiny human.

About halfway through her second year, I realized that in raising her, I was raising myself.

In teaching her patience, I searched for (and sometimes found) patience I didn’t know I possessed.

In teaching her understanding, I sought to better understand our world and those around us.

In teaching her gratitude, I nurtured gratitude in myself.

Raising Humans is about those lessons. The beautiful moments where we learn to stop and appreciate. And the terrible moments where, despite our frustration and, sometimes, desperation, we grow. Together.

  2. Tricia, I found your blog through Just Write, and I just wanted to say, this is beautiful. I don’t have children yet, but I so appreciate reading moms sharing with honesty and eloquence the journey of parenting. This is so profound: “About halfway through her second year, I realized that in raising her, I was raising myself. In teaching her patience, I searched for (and sometimes found) patience I didn’t know I possessed. In teaching her understanding, I sought to better understand our world and those around us. In teaching her gratitude, I nurtured gratitude in myself.” Thank you for sharing.

  3. My children are now 22, 20, and 16. You took me back to the days of babies, and the all-consuming mommy-ness of it all. I wouldn’t change a thing. Waiting (not so patiently at times) for grandkids!
