Ma chérie,

I owe you an apology, so I am going to do it now. Did you know I always tell people how amazing and special you are? Probably not, because I don’t treat you that way.

Today I raised my voice at you to get you to go faster, according to MY schedule. And my schedule is important, but it does not mean that we cannot together work out a way for you to get what you want and for me to get what I want too. And it certainly does not mean I get to be upset with you.

So I apologize for not allowing you to be all you can be and ignoring the idea that if I had asked you how to make this work we could actually have made it work.

I apologize for thinking that I know more than you. I know it’s not true.

I love you with every piece of my being and I want you to know that no matter how angry I get, no matter how much I raise my voice, I see you as whole, perfect and amazing. Don’t be fooled darling, you are one potent being who changes me (for the better) every day.

Ruby and Maya
