There is no such thing as balancing when you are constantly riding a roller coaster! All you have to do, and that depends on your personality, is either hold on tight and close your eyes or just let go and enjoy the ride '˜º and I think I fall under the second.

I would say everything, not just physically... She has my sense of humor, sense of style, even zests. She is also extremely sensitive!
A hand made heart shaped card!
Just be who you are and don't try to pretend you are someone you are not in front of your child! Like being a straight-A student or the fact that you never missed school! You really can't fool them and you will end up losing their respect and your credibility.
Teach them to be compassionate and to accept and respect others for who they are. They must learn...
