What I will think of first
Last week, I sat for a bit with the elegant beauty behind the blog community's beloved PVE. Patricia van Essche is everything her picture suggests. But it was her generous, gracious, and tireless kindness to my eleven- month-old Daughter which I will think of first. How do you properly thank a person who endured wiggling, kicking, snorting, laughing, and mashed banana in order to visit with us?
Possibly I can repay her kindness and patience by noting something you may not have known about her: I learned more from watching PVE with my little girl than I have learned from legions of mothers on the playground.
Pleased to meet you, Patricia. Here is to you, and all successful mothers of your extraordinary caliber.
