I had this post all written in my head. I would open with …
“If I told you that Jay went to school in silly socks this morning would that sound particularly impressive?
What if I told you that 2 years ago he refused to participate in any of this stuff and went to school in the same uniform he always goes in. Would that make it more impressive?”
I would go on to tell you how the greatness of some things can only be measured when they are compared to something else.
Then I went searching for a post I knew I had written about Jay and “silly socks day” at school a couple of years ago. I needed to reference it so you could see just how far he’s come. I just knew that in the post, I had said that I tried to get him to wear silly socks to school but he objected.
Then I found the post and read it … And, lo and behold, my memory was all wrong.
The post was all about how proud I was of my boy and his willingness to wear mis-matched socks to school and what a big deal that was.
Silly me, here I was all ready to take away some of the credit that Jay deserves. Apparently, he’s been amazing me in the socks department for a long time.
