I appreciate the reprint. It lands differently now that I’m a mom. It often feels like all the little things I do aren’t very special or “specialized”. But when others fill in to care for our little one, he eventually reaches a point where he just wants mom (or dad). While anyone can read books or play or go for walks, no one else can be mom. It’s the relationship that’s special. By doing all the generalist things, I specialize in being me, as you said, which includes specializing in knowing and connecting to my son (i.e. specializing in my role as his mom). I think this goes for all relationships.

Yes, I agree, Danielle. It's the particularity of place and persons that matters deeply!
