Sometimes the smallest parenting successes can seem like major victories. Case in point: leaving the house in the morning for school. Being on time for school drop off feels like a major victory each morning. Let’s be clear – being early isn’t an option, but being on time makes me feel like I can – or have – conquered the world. Because my kids were clothed. My kids (may or may not) have been fed. My kid have completed their homework. And, most likely, we’ve enjoyed a peaceful ride to school…thanks, Steve Jobs!! So, as I wave goodbye and wish my kids a great day, I give myself a mental high five that I’ve done it once again! Alas…till tomorrow morning.
