Okay I REALLY want to know if others mothers believe their children to be the most incredible living organisms on the planet to the degree that I do? I marvel at this child daily, I wonder at him, gaze at him, adore him. Such a beautiful little person, and definitely the most incredible living organism on the planet...
It would be less then honest to say that I didn't sort of think this attitude of his pedestal perception would have died down a little by now seeing as he screams randomly now, throws things, hits, bites, tantrums and refuses to do pretty much whatever is asked of him. It doesn't seem to matter in the iron tight bias of a mother's heart though as the redemption comes in the form of wet kisses, bear hugs, his little sweaty hand in mine, the relief when he does occasionally comply, his enthusiasm, laugh, curly hair, energy, determination, a personality all his own and his ability to draw out a degree of unconditional love otherwise unknown.
