“I’m not a parenting expert. In fact, I’m not sure that I even believe in the idea of ‘parenting experts.’ I’m an engaged, imperfect parent and a passionate researcher. I’m an experienced mapmaker and a stumbling traveler. Like many of you, parenting is by far my boldest and most daring adventure.” We fought this morning. I fought with my three year old because he got out of his bed three times last night for zero apparent reason. We fought because I was tired and frustrated and he was tired and frustrated. We fought, we got our emotions out, and then we hugged.
James is like his momma, there isn’t much that can happen in life that a good embrace can’t fix. 💕
When you feel like you’re at your wits end battling it out with a three-nager and you are about to explode...take a deep breath and hug them. I promise it can change everything.
