Some day when my children are old enough to understand the logic that motivates a mother, I will tell them:

  • I loved you enough to ask you about where you were going, with whom, and what time you would get home.
  • I loved you enough to be silent and let you discover that your hand-picked friend was a creep.
  • I loved you enough to make you return a Milky Way, with a bite out of it, to a drugstore and to confess: “I stole this.”
  • I loved you enough to stand over you for two hours while you cleaned your room, a job that would have taken me fifteen minutes.
  • I loved you enough to let you see anger, disappointment, disgust, and tears in my eyes.
  • I loved you enough to admit I was wrong and ask for your forgiveness.
  • I loved you enough to let you stumble, fall and hurt.
  • I loved you enough to let you assume the responsibility for your actions at 6, 10, 16, or 18.

But most of all, I loved you enough to say NO when you hated me for it. That was the hardest part of all.
