I don't think we ever have to worry about whether or not Tate will have a good sense of esteem as an adult. If anything, we will have to reign it in lest he become an egomaniac. This conversation with Mark is a prime example as to why:
Me: Isn't it so great how every parent thinks their baby is the cutest, smartest and sweetest baby in the whole world?
Mark: Well yeah, but that's only because they haven't met Tate!
Me: Um, DUH!
