Ever have one of those conversations with a friend in which you very confidently predict the outcome of a situation involving one or both of your children?
Get over it.
I hate it when my kids do exactly the opposite of what I thought they were going to do.
I love it when they do that, though.
I love that, even though I think I know them so well they can shock the sh*t out of me and remind me that they are not 2-dimensional cardboard characters I can stand in place and watch for a while.
I love it when my perfectionistic, predictable, sweetheart of a girl decides she wants to take tae kwon do classes with a bunch of younger boys.
I love it when my kamikaze girl decides she would rather join the swim team and follow in her mommy's footsteps.
Who woulda thunk it?
I'm smiling just thinking about their willingness to stretch themselves in ways I never would have imagined. I am such a lucky mom!
