What My Son's Disabilities Taught Me About 'Having It All' By Marie Myung-Ok Lee

In an effort to make this tumblr less exclusively panda-related I am linking to this lovely essay by Marie Myung-Ok Lee about what her son’s profound disability has taught her about accepting and enjoying life as it is. This line, about the omnipresent Anne-Marie Slaughter having it all piece, made me laugh: “But the hidden heart of the article, I believe, is its hinting at that unspoken yearning for that perfect life that has been promised to us by … someone? Ads? TV? Ms. Magazine? Those ATHLETA catalogs?”

It’s totally those ATHLETA catalogs.
