I love you. Be good. Listen. Don’t armpit fart. Obey Mrs. K. Wash your hands. Be good. Listen. Wait your turn. Behave nicely. Say ‘please’ and ‘thank you.’ Walk. Be good. Listen. Eat your lunch. Clean up. Say ‘excuse me.’ Listen the first time. Worry about yourself. Be good. Listen. Use your manners. Sit quietly. Be good. Listen. I love you.
Was it enough? Was I enough for you? Did we read enough books? Hug enough? Was I patient enough? Are you ready? Am I ready? Simon, be good. Please listen. I love you.
