Embracing the Chaos

Embrace the Chaos LandscapeAs we were heading in to the grocery store it was raining, and our five year old daughter was in a super cute pair of boots. It hadn’t rained in a while, and this was a good rain. The type of rain that makes a lot of puddles… the type of puddles perfect for five year olds to jump in. Without asking, she made her first leap in to one of the puddles which resulted in a series of cute giggles. She found another, and then another, and then another puddle to jump in. Despite my initial instinct to stop her, I’m proud to say I let her jump in those silly puddles even though she was wearing those super cute boots. Her boots dried and everything was fine. No damage done.

Sometimes we have to embrace the chaos and let our kids be kids.

I’m guilty… I often times parent based on the expectations others have for their kids, when in reality what’s important to me may not be important to another, and vise versa.
