Sometimes love doesn't look the way we think it should or the way we want it to.
Not having the last word.
Leveling up your son's character instead of your own.
Not giving an opinion or advice.
Not pushing for what's "fair".
Maintaining eye contact on a face *just in case* they happen to look up and want to see that you're paying attention.
... is love.
It's all so confusing and difficult to do in the moment.
