A good day exceeds expectations

Sometimes having a toddler can be exhausting, but today was a good day. Ian was clever, polite, ravenous, snuggly, funny and incredibly cute. I just remind myself to pick my battles. If he wants to wear a dirty Harvard t-shirt with horizontal striped pj bottoms and Batman crocs to the company dinner party, so be it. He's happy and it's not like he's going to a job interview.

It's all about keeping your expectations realistic.
