I will try not to lose my patience.
I will say "no" less.
I will rock a little longer...
I will squeeze a little tighter.
I may bend the rules....
To extend bedtimes.
I will breathe deeper....
Counting to 10 before raising my voice.
I will try to be less controlling.
I might stay outside a little longer.
The dishes will be dirty.
The carpets un-vacuumed.
The laundry unfolded.
We may even skip a bath or two.
He will have enjoyed every "will" and "may" or "might."
And that makes it all worthwhile.
