Today my sister-in-law said, “TGIF!”

I know some parents who may not say it out loud, but on Monday mornings, they’re thinking, “TGIM!” That means it’s Monday morning and they can go back to work where they feel competent, valued and can tell whether or not they’re doing a good job. Parenthood, wonderful as it is, doesn’t tend to offer much by way of validation and affirmation of a job well done. But remember: just because no one’s telling you you’re doing a good job doesn’t mean that you aren’t.
