Natalie and Willie on being parents
  1. Natalie: I wish I’d known this about Mom Guilt

    We can’t be there every moment and the hardest part is learning to let go a little, to give your kids the confidence and tools they need to be happy, well-adjusted, successful little people and then young adults.
