I read a post yesterday on Cup of Jo that set me thinking.
How would I describe my family in three words?
The first one that sprang to mind was loud.
The Boy Child lives his life on full volume,
and, no, he doesn’t have any hearing problems.
If I can’t see him, either at home or when we’re out,
I only have to listen for a second or two before being able to pinpoint his location.
And I can usually be heard yelling at any given point on any given day.
The second one is enough.
We are a family of three.
The Brainy One and I have a son.
We shouldn’t have to justify why The Boy Child is an only child.
Quite frankly, it’s none of your d**n business.
For us, three is the magic number.
The third word was left to The Boy Child to choose: brilliant.
When I asked him why that word, he replied,
“because we are“.
Which made me feel glad that he sees us that way,
because there are many, many days when we are far from that.
What three words would you chose to describe your family?
