Jackie's Mom•Logic: I grew up Catholic, but my son's a practicing narcissist.
Narcissism is a common trait in 3-year-olds, right? It's not their fault--at that age, the world really is all about them. But isn't it our job as Moms to show them that there's more to life than their needs and teach them to be mindful of that?
I decided it was time to bring my little guy Jacob to church--and to be perfectly honest, make an appearance there myself on a day that wasn't actually a holiday. So off we went...
When it was time for the reading, I picked up Jacob and whispered, "That man is going to tell us a very important story." Little did I know, the day I picked for our church-going debut was the day the reading was all about 'the Samaritan woman at Jacob's well'. My son smiled smugly while listening intently to the story he thought was being told especially for him.
Oh well, I tried.
