Just beaming with motherly pride right now. My little guy has made some major strides in potty training. I continue to be swept off my feet in amazement at the capabilities of this tiny person. This person, who has only been around for 19 months, and the constant change he provides to our days is just incredible.
This parenting gig, just when you think you are starting to settle into it, they like to go and throw something new at you. I am learning to follow his lead, rather than to always be the one guiding… Learning to shrug my shoulders and ask: “Why not?“, instead of insisting upon following paths paved with preconception.
No idea you have in your head, no book, no tales from other parents, can prepare you for the days when your child takes you by the hand, whether literally or figuratively, and leads you off in the next new direction.
