I was schooled in parenting yesterday.
This parent is a few years shy of 100. ONE HUNDRED.
This parent is the only caregiver for an only child.
Caregiver. Housekeeper. Cook and bottle washer.
Nary a word of complaint.
Nary a request for help.
Just a get up every single day and do it attitude.
When the world should be doting on her.
She is doting on her entire world.
I told her she was my favorite. She laughed.
And made me want to be a better parent.
And a better person.
