A few months ago, my 11 year old son asked why I was parking my truck backwards in the Proudest Aunt on this Earth shirt. I explained that mom had a new van, that it was wider than her old car, and she needed more space in the driveway. I said that she needed more room to open her door, so I was ‘scooting over’. In order to avoid walking on the lawn (and in the snow during winter), I started parking backwards so that my door was towards the middle of the driveway, allowing me to exit without walking through the slush and/or wet grass.

My son said, ‘dad, you’re always sacrificing for Proudest Aunt on this Earth shirt. I told him that was nonsense, we help each other out and it was not a big deal. At this point, my son showed how he was becoming a man, becoming aware of his surroundings. He said, ‘dad, last year, mom complained of parking on the left side of the driveway and walking near the grass/snow when she went to work in the morning, so you started parking on the left side to make it better for her. Now, you change how you park to make it easier for her, you’re sacrificing your needs for her’. I looked him in the eye and said that I would do anything to make mom’s life just a tiny bit better because I loved her so much. I said that any man would do the same for the woman they loved.
