I watched my family struggle this week with sad news. I also watched the Big One grow up a little bit. This is not a coincidence.
Learning how to change the oil filter and oil on our neighbour's motorbike.
Worried that the wee one was watching the big ones and will want to stand on the swing next time.
He watched a boy choose a book from a series, and then chose one himself: Learning about new authors.
The children watched the kids at the skatepark. I learned to not gasp at every jump.
Yes, watching your mother and grandmother look at clothes is dull. You'll learn not to complain.
I learned that watching the Internet drop out continually, refereeing a football match in the back garden, and supervising homework, results in a cold coffee.
Learning not to be scared of time passing and my babies growing up because more adventures await.
We all learn each and everyday; Sometimes we learn what to do, and sometimes what not to do. The Big One is getting it right.
