At the theory level, everyone who is a parent fails. So I join with you in failure — yet I am smiling. My brain exploded when I read this post and all my significant thoughts lay like jigsaw pieces in my cells. Thank you. To put them back together, I am going to have to file edges and take scissors to the knobs and curves, but it will be worth it because I’ll create a whole new bigger picture. Thank you, you beautiful failure…you.
