    successful in raising an accomplished, strong, and confident woman because you are too.  Like you, I was very close to my Dad.  He taught me how to do so many things, including changing a tire and using power tools.  He taught me to be independent and strong.

    I have a daughter and two sons.  She is the oldest, and so I was the hardest on her.  But now, as I reflect, I'm not sure if I was hard on her because she was the first or because she is a girl.  She is very strong, independent, and accomplished. (She is a chief resident in Internal Medicine headed to do a cardiology fellowship next summer).  And yes, she did some of those badass things as a teenager that I was terrified she would do (like sneak out to parties, drink too much, etc):  but she is doing just fine now.

    So relax, badkitties, and enjoy the ride!

    Know what you believe, why you believe it, who believes with you, and how it matters. Stand for what you believe, believe what you stand for.
