When it’s just my wife and I hanging out, things are pretty chill.
When it’s just my daughter and I hanging out, things are pretty chill.
When it’s just my wife and daughter, I hear that things are also pretty chill.
But when the three of us are hanging out together, things can get way more complicated. There are automatically a number of power dynamics that come into play in the room. Rory is trying to make sure both Alex and I are paying attention to her. I get mad at Rory and Alex tells me to calm down and stop trying to control the situation.

This brings me to the Holy Trinity. It’s messy by nature because it’s not binary. It’s not this-or-that, black-or-white, right-or-wrong. It’s about placing ourselves in the midst of a complex triune relationship and all of the beauty it holds.
Grace & Godspeed,
