Pride-Swallowing Siege

The first fifteen seconds: “You don’t know what it’s like to me be ME out here for YOU. It’s an up-at-dawn, pride-swallowing siege that I will NEVER fully tell you about.”

For several years, this rant captured how I felt as a mother. I did tell the offspring about it, but, I suppose, as Jerry (Tom) says, never fully.

Help me help you. Rod (Cuba) mocks Jerry for this request. But this might be the best four-word description of what we want for our children and our students.
