Today was a rougher day than most. Gavin had a more difficult day, full of less than stellar decisions. I will say that as the day went on, he did better and for that he deserves credit.
At bedtime, I told him what I always tell him.
I said, Gavin I love you. Have good dreams. Tomorrow is a clean slate, wiped of all today’s mistakes.
Perhaps it sounds a bit cheesy but I want him to know that A) we love him tremendously and B) that everyday we start over with a clean slate. We still have consequences from our actions the previous day but we start over a new, hopefully using the mistakes we made yesterday to help us get through today.
I know most of that is over his head but it helps me to keep things in perspective as well and it’s a nice way to end the day.
