There is no manual that comes with parenting. That said, my son, I will fail you. I came into parenting with preconceived notions, as I do in many situations, and I realize I don’t have a clue. But I do know I must learn to study you.
What I’ve learned so far:
- Play in puddles.
- Jump on the trampoline daily.
- Love dogs.
- Enjoy books.
- Share a common interest.
- Explore everything.
- Have no fear.
- Experiment doing things yourself.
- Voice your opinion.
- Slow down and swing twice a day.
- Laugh so hard until you don’t remember why you started.
