Sam just started walking. It’s very exciting, for him and for us. Everyone is very proud of him, including Maddie.
There’s a kid on the first floor of our building who’s just about a year. As we came off the elevator on our way to the bus the other morning we saw him in the hallway, walking. As we walked on Maddie said to me “Some little babies walk.”
I said, “Yes, that’s right, Maddie. Some little babies walk.”
She then said “And sometimes it takes longer. Like with Sam.”
I agreed that was true.
“But it’s not a race.”
“You are right Maddie, it’s not a race.”
There are parents that could learn this lesson.
