My son is nineteen months old. This is such a cool age! He's learned that words have meanings and is starting to communicate really well, and he follows simple directions, and is basically becoming more an adorable little person and less an adorable little blob every day.
So, I'm thinking a lot about how I can be a fantastic mom, now that I'm finally catching up on my sleep. Of course: love him unconditionally. Be sure he has all the things he needs, and some of the things he wants. Support him in his endeavors.

What was the best thing your parents ever did for you? In what ways did they best support you? How did they help you become the person you are today?
