I don't have that much to say this week...
I am worn down because The Mayor is three.
So far, three is hard.
He is so defiant... and yet transparent in a somewhat endearing way.
He acts out, blatantly disregarding K and I.
[If he knew about his middle finger he'd be using it.]
His struggle against us is maddening, but...
I understand that he's trying to find his own power and agency, reaching blindly for the borders and boundaries of his personhood.
In my finer moments I feel compassion for him.
I was driving the other day and I saw a bumber sticker that said,
Compassion is the Best Revenge
What does that mean?
Is that right?
Can compassion and revenge share the same space?
[And should I consider a bumper sticker a good source for parenting advice?]
Explain it to me.
I need to center my three year old tolerance chakras or something...
