I wrote this to remind my self of all the ways the perfect day can happen. And just how easy it can be if I simply stop TRYING to make the perfect day happen. May I always do my job well and provide her with the room to grow as she pleases!
I only just read the name for what happened here this morning, last night: “Slow Parenting”.
At first I thought it was going to be something I didn’t like. “Slow Parenting” lends itself to sounding unlikable, I think!
I tend to think of what happened here today as “Purposefully Unpurposeful Parenting”. And while that may be a mouthful (and possibly grammatically impossible!) I think it describes it so much better than “Slow Parenting”.
