I’m having so much fun learning how to french braid over here in our corner of the world, and thanks to my patient 4 year-old, I’m getting lots of practice! I’ll admit that my technique is still far from perfect, and I’m certainly not a natural, but it has been fun to learn something new and to see improvement with practice. When someone complimented Maria on her hair the other day, she told them, “Thanks, my mom did it for me. She’s getting better.”
I never thought that I would know so much about dragons, cats, or lizards, but thanks to my curious 8 year-old, I’m practically an expert.
What new things have you learned thanks to your children? As we enter the last days of summer (sniff, sniff), let’s take some time to reflect on all of the wonderful ways that our children have grown and changed us.
