Watching Your Parents Grow Up

Image
A few years ago when my daughter turned 1 I gifted her a duck pull-toy I made by hand. My son is a few months away from his first birthday, and I started on a train for him (don't tell him, it's a surprise.) It's been fun to include my daughter in this project. She's a big help and I think there's something really powerful when your child sees you have an idea, struggle with it, have setbacks, but remain persistent. I read somewhere that when you're a kid you don't realize you're watching your parents growing up, maybe that's why we think they have all the answers. So now I try to learn things in front of her, practice things I'm not good at, and even fail gracefully. Maybe she won't see me as a superhero, but hopefully she'll be better for it.
