I often imagine how I am going to answer difficult questions and explain confusing and complex issues to my daughter as she gets older. Where do babies come from? What is the difference between boys and girls? Why do I have to go to school? Why do I have to get shots?
I LOVE that my daughter does not behave perfectly all of the time! Do you think I'm crazy? Let me explain. I don't love disciplining my daughter, it breaks my heart. What I do love is that she has the opportunity to learn from mistakes and that there are consequences for her actions when she is in the safety of my care and those consequences are small.
