yesterday my son said, mom! I need to write santa a note to say thank you for coming to visit us in florida and michigan!
never have I felt more validated as a mother. I did something right! on days when everything seems wrong, wrong, wrong, I need to to bring moments like this into the fray. manners are difficult to understand, instill, and act upon. so when my son exercises them, needless to say I am THRILLED.
mother mag apparently agrees.
keep up the good fight, moms. its so worth. now excuse me, I need to go write my mom a thank you note for teaching me the importance of being well mannered. no elbows on the dining table!
