I could bemoan this confession and even cite it as proof that I have in fact failed the non-existent parent test. I choose instead to highlight the one super great fact of my special frozen pizza dinner - we were all together. My 13 and 15 year old sons were watching TV in the same room, with me. You have to look for your victories sometimes.
I still have great expectations. Thankfully the one major expectation I have been able to honor is looking for the good in my kids - focusing on their good qualities, their strengths. Now I just need to remember to do that for myself.
