Let the little boys play with flowers and trinkets Let little girls slide down trees and staircases How can our children blossom if we confine them... "Sit like a lady! Boys don't cry!" Breathe before you speak Then talk, with love Don't nip them in the bud
My almost 14 month old had his first day at Kita today... I was in for a surprise.
The seismic shift of giving birth has settled, however....
Engaging in a sport so blatantly simple, challenging and fulfilling wiped our stressed-out brains clean.
You'd think as parents we'd stop at 12 flights before he turns one. But no, there's more in store...
I went from wondering how I'd ever give birth; (this stupid watermelon-through-a-lemon-sized-hole analogy always playing on my mind); to doing just that and more. Much more.
My baby is not the only one with a 6 month milestone!
