Our local symphony does a free outdoor concert at an amiptheater each summer. It was tonight and we took Gus.
It was challenging. He was cute and happy but I got to watch precisely one song. They have a ticket giveaway to another show if you post your picture and tag them so I posted a picture of Lesley and Gus. A woman commented: “we saw your little boy take a tumble into the thorn bush! We were very impressed with your reaction and how you handled it. Keep up the nice job mama!”
I cried. This is the first time a stranger has complimented my parenting. Gus did take a tumble into a thorn bush before the show. I have no idea how I handled it because it was a very ordinary moment. That makes this even more touching.
Compliment other parents!
