Monday – Finding Our Way
As newborn babies grow into precocious toddlers, one of their primary discoveries is that they have their own will. Once that happens, the challenge of parenting begins! I am not sure how, but these angelic looking little children intuitively know how to use extortion to get us to meet their demands. They watch for our most vulnerable moments—waiting in a long line or sitting in a church service. Then they begin to create a fuss, clearly letting us know that they will escalate this to any level necessary if we do not give in! As much as toddlers are a handful, I admire that they know exactly what they want.
