He summed it up so well over at Soulemama...

I've not found one endeavor more capable of producing fear and offering scary moments than that of raising children. As they navigate through the trials of a day, I am given many opportunities to see my own shortcomings. As a parent. As a person. Like staring into the mirror and studying my own eyes, I see, in them, the truth. In them, I am confronted with the very best and the very worst of myself. Every. Single. Day. And there I am for my children to see, strengthened by trial and humbled by experience. Crowned as a champion and exposed as a fraud. The only thing I have to offer is myself and... I've got nowhere else to be.
