I am a white suburban middle class married mother of two teenagers. I spent most of their childhoods on the crazy hamster wheel of a family with two commuting parents, trying our best to get ahead in life. I believed wholeheartedly in liberal ideals, cheered at soccer games, organized birthday parties, and volunteered to help in the classroom. I desperately wanted to believe that excelling at work and school would lead to a successful and meaningful life.

I am incredibly grateful for everything I have.

But…I had it all wrong.
