not so bad, being the grown-up

I love the fact that I can take "no" for an answer from my kids, that I'm secure enough, mature enough, and mindful enough to know that my agenda doesn't always have to come first. My kids don't have to eat my cooking for me to feel special. My kids don't have to dress in ways that make me comfortable in order for me to feel secure or limit themselves to my preferences about technology for me to feel competent. My kids can be who they are even when it is inconvenient and disconcerting to me, and that's a marvel.
