Do I parent intensely?

Do whatever you do intensely. - Robert Henri

Makes me think, do I parent intensely (intensely in a good way, of course, not in a hovering helicopter parent kind of way). Do I tell myself --- there is a moment in which I need to be completely there --- I can grab it?

I am learning about this concept at work, but how is my parenting being affected? Am I asking myself to put in overtime, to forgo breaks, or (am I doing it right) to explore adventures with my children that will last a lifetime of memories? Am I evaluating myself and giving myself glorious and glowing reviews?

I believe right now I am a good and better than mediocre mom. My practice is going to get more intense. I'm going to see the opportunity to excel at mommy-ing. I'll let you know how it goes!
