It takes a tribe…
October 29, 2009

…to raise a child. I really do believe that. A lot of people ask how my son is so well adjusted to the custody arrangements my ex-husband and I have, and how smart and well mannered he is. They tell me a story about how their kid screams every time they’re at the grocery store or how they have a horrible habit of spitting on the mirror and rubbing their hands through it. Oh wait that last one was my kid… You see my kid isn’t perfect either. But the compliments I get about him are all true and he is in fact well adjusted, smart and well mannered.

I think the reason why is because he’s picked up things from all of us, his family, all of us have something to give him. He says please and thank you and knows how to politely interrupt when the adults are talking. He tells me I’m beautiful even when I haven’t put my make-up on. He doesn’t scream, yell or kick when we are out in public, he’s just a good kid. So long as he has his nap mind you, he is still a four year old (in December-eeek!).

Next time someone asks me how I got so lucky I’ll tell them, it takes a tribe.
