He’s been known to dip his carrots in ketchup, mayonnaise, peanut butter, honey, hummus, and so on. These are the seemingly mundane moments that make up the story of our lives and I aim to preserve these memories. I went to grab a picture of his "Ketchunnaise" dip for his carrots and as he reached to dip his carrot, his shirt raised slightly and I caught a glimpse of something else. I asked him what was on his belly and a sheepish grin appeared on his face along with the response, “Nuffing...” as he did a quick inspection of his art. I could’ve been angry with him but instead, I made the conscious decision to laugh it off. It’s washable marker, after all, it will wash away. He doesn’t know I chose not to be mad, but he may actually remember the smile on my face as I asked him about his artwork on his belly. He presents us with a new challenge every single day, he pushes his limits, and tests our patience like no other. The true test of parenting is how *we* respond, is it not?
