toddler years

This wild, unpredictable, toddler stage has been my parenting sweet spot.
Everyone has to grow up, but I want my daughter to hold onto the magic of being a toddler as long as possible. I want her to run around, uninhibited. I want her to understand the beauty of freedom.
Like every mother, I want to see all of my kids grow into happy, fully functioning people. But now I am now convinced that endeavor can only begin when I accept who they naturally are.
