Let Them Do It Themselves

One of the hardest parts about parenting a young child is having to do everything for them. You’re taking care of another person, completely responsible for their well-being and livelihood.

I Get It Now, Mom

I get it now, Mom. I haven’t been a mother for all that long. And I’m sure I’ll have more “Eureka!” moments along the way.
