Cure for Parental Grumpiness

I’ve mostly avoided personal posts here, but this little recent episode warmed my heart so much I thought I’d pass it along, especially since it’s a grey, gloomy sort of day out here and we can all use a little mental sunshine.

Tired grumpy parent: “How’s your day going?”

Lovely daughter: “Pretty good now.”

TGP: “Your parents must be doing something right, then.”

LD: “Everybody in the world is doing something right, Mommy, because they’re all loving someone.”

Who could stay grumpy after that? Hugs all ’round!
