And that very next day, I was challenged again when Miss Petey begged to wear her Tinkerbell dress up to the mall. I again fought with myself and thought, "Will people think I am the wierdest mother ever?". I then decided that it didnt matter what others thought. She is only going to be 2 1/2 once. And someday I am going to miss the days when she would twirl around in her Tinkerbell dress to songs she made up on the spot.
So I am slowly learning to pick my battles. I am slowly learning to care about what my children think and how happy they are and not about what other people think. Because I know who matters most in this world and that is my family.
On that note, we celebrated Boss' Grandparent's 50th wedding anniversary over the weekend. What an amazing experience to be a part of. I am so grateful that they chose each other, had a daughter, and that their daughter had a son who is now my best friend. :) It is amazing to see how many lives have been touched all because two people fell in love.
And that's how Suze sees it.
