Before I had kids, I had visions of what it would be like to show the world to them.
We’d discover and explore and learn! And it would be magical!
For example, we’d go on a hike and find a patch of mushrooms.
The Magic would happen:
The Learning would happen too:
They’d be fascinated. Curious. Isn’t the world amazing?
And now that I am a parent I know the truth.
This is exactly what happens.
10% of the time.
And this is what happens the rest of the time…
Fighting must be fun because they do it all the time.
Does their interest in the world increase? No. The only thing that increases is the volume of their whines.
It doesn’t matter what I know. They already know everything.
Nothing makes a kid run faster than hearing their mother yell “Stop!”
So there you have it. 10% magic & learning and 90%
This is what it is like to share the world with kids. Well, with my kids. You might be rocking a different percentage. What do you think? Did I miss anything?
