I stepped on one of my daughters toes recently. Figuratively. Even your kids don't need your opinion all the time. I'm a fixer of problems. It's my DNA. It's just what I do. But most people don't want their problems fixed and if they do they will ask. That's a difficult lesson to learn and re-learn. Sit quietly. Keep your mouth shut. Answer only when asked upon. It's a first grade lesson that I often forget. And then I feel bad when I do it.
I made about 3/5 of a Perry the Platypus costume for my kid tonite. And loved every second of it.
