You are a nothing, my daughter accused me at age 4, when she found out at school that all her classmates’ mother’s had jobs that gave them important titles like banker, doctor, teacher. And such a blessing that has turned out to be that I don’t have one thing that defines me and nothingness offers me the space to be a homeschooling parent, an artist, a writer, storyteller, a crocheter and everything else that comes with the territory of being a stay-at -home mom. Being a nothing keeps me out of trouble.
