Oh, Jessica. Some days I wish I was your Mama so I could brag about you and not sound like I’m a sandwich short of a picnic. This one is spot on. I get why the “higher standard” one is the top highlight, but “should” damn near buried me. Some days (weeks/months) it’s still trying. But I see it now, and you can’t ever change a thing if you can’t even see it. The tricky part is that “should” and “higher standard” sometimes swap costumes so you hardly know which is which.
