Good Intentions

boy questions

In the rush of getting the kids into the van, to travel to three different places in order to make it to work on time, My middle son, notorious for wanting to play in the driver’s seat (much to my chagrin) had opened the driver’s side door.

I felt an instantaneous surge of discontent and as soon as I was about to fuss, he moved on to his door hopping into his booster seat. In that split second, before my routine response, I was about to chastise my son for doing a kind gesture, opening the door for his mother.

Time to slow down.
