One of my favorite parts of being a mom is watching my kids solve things for themselves.
Sometimes I’m privileged enough to get a glimpse into their process – to hear them struggling through the mess of it, bouncing back from their mistakes, and zeroing in on what might or might not work for them.
Other times I just happen to stumble upon the results.
Others I did.
Either way, when I witness one of my children coming up with a solution or mastering a challenge – especially to problems that I once believed insurmountable – it’s pretty stunning.
And sometimes I get to enjoy that experience over and over, everywhere I turn, for days on end.
Lucky, lucky me.
