Yes Ma’am.

This is worth writing down

Today, both boys said “Yes Ma’am,” in unison while I was getting onto them. This was the first time TWO has ever said it, and he clapped for himself and cheered afterwards. It was one of those rare moments where I thought to myselfI’m doing something right. Kind of like how I feel when ONE rushes ahead of me exclaiming, “I’ll open the door for you, Mommy.

This is a long road, but I sure hope I can keep plodding along and trying to enforce manners. And maybe one day, in the middle of dealing with who-knows-what, I’ll look out the window and see one of my sons opening the car door for a girl. Or standing up for each other, or speaking up for someone else who may not be able to. This is my dream.
