I am very transactional with the boys.
Finish your homework.
Practice your music.
Get something special from the snack drawer.
Keep your desk clean.
Get a sip out of my nice smelling coffee.
Show tenacity through the week.
Get out to dinner at a place of your choice.
Do chores around the house.
Get a hug from me.
Give and take.
You do. I do.
Yep. I admit it.
Although I love them with all my heart, I try to be very transactional with the boys.
Rainbow, on the other hand, showers them with unconditional love.
No give and take.
Just. Unconditional. Love.
How can I feel jealous when the boys return (notice the pun on transaction?!) that unconditional love to Rainbow?
So, I observe. As always, I observe from the sidelines.
And, marvel at how life and love plays out.
