I have had a lot of time, see,
to think about what it is
that makes somebody a good parent.
And it’s about constancy…patience, listening,
and it’s about pretending to listen even when you can’t listen anymore.
And it’s about love, like she (Lucy) said.
See, Billy has a home with me and I made it the best I could.
And it’s not perfect…
and I’m not a perfect parent and sometimes I don’t have enough patience and I forget he’s just a little kid.
But we built a life together and we love each other.
And if you destroy that, it’ll be irre–irrep–
Let me see. Let me see.
