Mom enough

Dear Jonas

The week was particularly tough.

It's been a long time since you cried inconsolably, with all your might. Nothing we did was able to stop you. you had your own plans. You were determined to test the boundaries, and you knew you had to win. Great to know you inherited my tenacity, although you applying it at perhaps the wrong things.

This went on day after day. In school and at home.

At the peak of all the drama, I broke down as I did not know what else I could do to make you stop. I was made to look like a bad mother in front of your teachers, and I knew I didn't want to feel small to you.

When you spotted my teary eyes, you stopped what you were doing, came and lay your head on my lap, like you knew I needed comfort. The only other reason why you ever lay your head on my lap is for me give you assurance of my presence.

This time, it seemed like you are doing the same for me. You wanted to assure me that I am mom enough for you.

That's all I needed to feel better. Thanks for the vote of confidence, and thanks for reminding me in your own little way that all these will pass, and it is up to me to guide you through.

Mummy loves you.
