Earlier this year we visited my sister’s home (farm) and the children ran about playing in rain puddles and in the mud with their cousins. They had so much fun – I loved watching them –
I let them play – and then we hosed them down and dressed them in clean and dry clothes – the mess was worth it – they had such a good time – playing, exploring and being independent –
Both my children are extremely independent, confident and strong willed – as you can see – Drew wandering away into the distance – away from the rest of us – he is quite a handful – so much curiosity and so much confidence! and so much love…
Trying to keep a watchful eye without squashing their strong wills and minds – it is a difficult line to walk – knowing what we do and say now can make, or break the spirit of a child…and in turn, destroy the potential of an adult.
Love my Littles – even on the most difficult and trying days – they (and my husband) are my everything.
Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend!
