22 Things We Need to Teach our Children

Along with a demanding, but so loved career, I am raising two children.  Girls.  Tween girls.  Clients, lenders, venders, inspectors, emplyees and girls - that is my day.  .  It's no wonder I am exhausted and can barely set the table when I'm done with my day - which  by the way I've never REALLY done with, being in real estate.  

At the end of the day, when we are sitting around the dinner table, whether out at one of our favorite local spots, or in the coziness of our own home, I try to teach my daughters a few things that they will hopefully care through life with them. .
