I'm missing those moments with my own children, my heart breaking, because I am choosing to be there for yours.
Lisa Webb has two daughters that were born during her five years in France. Her family has also spent years living in Indonesia and West-Africa. She is the author of the children’s book series, ‘The Kids Who Travel the World’. Now back home in Canada, Lisa can be found teaching in a classroom near you; or you can follow her on Canadian Expat Mom, Instagram and Facebook .
I woke up Sunday morning in the South of France to the sound of The Hip coming from the living room. As I rolled out of bed, rubbing my eyes, I found my husband with coffee in hand, accompanied by two pink princesses in superhero capes, catching up on what all of Canada was engrossed in while we were asleep.

As a former teacher I remember shortening kids' names, thinking I was giving them a special nickname. Now, as a parent, I cringe that I once did that. It wasn't up to me to change the name they were given.
