e many layers. Well, so does this story.Layer one is the frustrating mommy mode moment that morphed into Facebook comic relief. Yep, right there in the middle of social media cyber space, a children's book idea was born!Layer two is the story itself; a silly mommy misadventure with a rice cake. It's fun. It's whimsical. It's benign. And it took just a couple of months to put it all together.Layer three is a little more complicated. It requires some backstory.The back story…My daughter often cried when I wasn't home as she got off the school bus. It made me reflect upon what I did during the day. I discovered that my priorities were off balance and I searched for a way make things right, to apologize. The middle of this story evolved into an explanation of what kept me so busy during my children’s school day. It also shows my unyielding efforts to get home first.After this book was finished (2011), it sat gathering dust while I had a showdown with my pride. That's when I realized that the explanations for my busyness were more excuse than anything else. Eventually, I cut out the excess by quitting my part-time job and finishing graduate school once and for all.Finally, after another year of experimenting, journaling and praying; the decision to homeschool resurfaced (the first surface is another story). This became the completion of one evolution...and start of another layer.Long story short, there is a cyclical affect a parent's actions have on both self and child. When I peeled back my layers of parental consciousness, I found leaks in the foundation. I also found an evolutionary next step toward authenticity...which revealed more leaks, which...well, you get the picture!A question for you...Ever had a "rice cake moment" inspire your parental evolution?
