Right? Starting to write again, like riding a bike? I am going to find out as I try to open back up and write again?
So much time has passed and as any parent with a young child will tell you, it is like having a new child every week. They change so much. Their vocabulary expands exponentially and so does their comprehension.
When I last wrote back in Feb 2016 he looked like this…
…And he has grown up so much!
as with everything worthwhile, there have been many challenges. Some more difficult than others. The same challenges may parents face, some challenges just dads really get to face (I really can’t put your socks on? REALLY?? Only mom can do it?).
But there are amazing things with these changes, you start to get to really know their personality, and hopefully they only drive you crazy part of the time (if they don’t drive you crazy, you might be an alien!). You get to see them accept new challenges, learn new skills, and it takes you back to when you were learning as well. I can’t say I have loads of memories at his age, but he is getting to the point where I remember aspects of my own childhood. Of course as a parent, you want to protect and keep them safe, while at the same time give them enough space to make mistakes and hopefully learn from them.
I have many stories to share over the next days and weeks.
