My kids don't have to be perfect little angels 24/7 for me to be proud of them....sounds a bit boring actually.
If you were my mom, I would want to make you proud of me.

If I was your son, would you be proud of me, if I did not excel academically or in sports, daydream for a second and forget to hold the door for another person, unable to decide to pick up the piece of paper the person in front of me dropped, because I am trying to do 3 other things exact same time?
