As I watched T.Puzzle pummel his clothes into submission, there was little I could do to improve his laundry folding techniques. Neatness was not the objective here.
I let it go.
This is the key to happiness in life and in motherhood.
In this house, especially in regards to T.Puzzle, it also helps to have thick skin. You see T.Puzzle was born without a filter. While he is softening the crusty edges of his soul a bit as he grows older, he still needs direction when it comes to matters of the heart. I decided to take it upon myself to share a little guidance when it comes to signing my upcoming Mother’s Day card.
“Keep in mind, try not to only highlight the things I do for you, but rather what about me as a person that you love.”
Immediately, a lightbulb went off and he shared his plans to sign his card to me this way:
“Thank you for giving birth to the greatest human alive.”
Wow. I really am special.
Here’s to hoping all your ‘greatest humans alive’ honor you in the way you so deserve.
Happy Mother’s Day!
