When I was pregnant, I spent a good deal of time reading up on my baby's potential Zodiac sign. Based on my due date I knew I was looking at a Gemini or a Taurus, and I was seriously hoping for the latter (sorry, Geminis, but you're terrible babies). I ended up with a bull baby, and true to form, she is practical and stubborn as hell. I never really considered the implications of my own sign for my impending motherhood, though. Take what you will from what I've divined as your most admirable parenting strength, based on your Zodiac sign, but I swear by it and even if you're not a believer, it's always nice to hear how you're killing the parenting game, one sleep-deprived day at a time.
Born in early July, I am a Cancer through and through. Deeply emotional and sensitive, I've always plagued by my insecurities. I'm also tenacious as hell and persistent in a way that's nothing short of inspiring. Cancers are known to be caregivers and homebodies, and this is true for me. As a mom, I'm sentimental to a fault, preserving memories in photos and scrapbooks. I'm happiest when there's harmony at home, and I think my greatest parenting strength is the way I care for my family.
