The latest issue of “Highlights” arrived today for Jeremy and he just so happened to have a teacher in the house to go through it with him. During the dinner I made for me and Mom, I watched her engage Jeremy in that instructional, highly-attentive way. I need to do this, I thought to myself. I need to be patient like that. The reality is that my mother came equipped with abnormal amounts of patience, a genetic deposit I didn’t receive.
Just check out his concentration.
